Join us for an all-inclusive wine tour experience aboard the Excelsior Springs Chamber Trolley! This is our special Christmas edition tour! Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best festive outfits. There will be games and contests throughout the tour, including prizes for best dressed!

Your adventure begins at Willow Spring Mercantile with a gourmet brunch in the wine cellar bistro paired with Missouri-made wines. Then we’ll hop aboard the trolley and head out to Fence Stile Vineyards & Winery, followed by Van Till Family Farm Winery. The last stop on the tour is at Four Horses & a Dog Vineyard & Winery before we conclude back in downtown Excelsior Springs. Each winery stop includes a full tasting experience. Plus, you’ll receive a souvenir 6-bottle wine bag to fill up with your favorite wines!

Brunch includes made from scratch sausage and vegetable quiche, spinach salad with fresh berries, and fresh fruit. A chocolate cappuccino brownie is served for dessert. A wine flight with your choice of sweet or dry wines will accompany the meal. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know when you register so the restaurant can accommodate.

*If you are part of a group, please let us know the names of everyone in your party, so we can set tables accordingly.

Tours start and end in Downtown Excelsior Springs at Willow Spring Mercantile, 249 E. Broadway, Excelsior Springs MO 64024.

*Excelsior Springs can be difficult to navigate if you are not familiar with the town’s layout, so please plan to arrive with enough time to find parking, use the restroom, etc. Also, many of the shops close at 5pm Saturday and are not open on Sundays, so if you’d like to shop, we recommend shopping Saturday morning. If you are staying at the Elms, Inn on Crescent Lake, Sunnyside Cottage or Payne Jailhouse and would like the trolley to pick you up there, please let us know in advance and our driver would be happy to do so.
