A real estate broker in Orange has branded himself in a novel way. ‘Old Towne Al” Ricci doesn’t just take out ads and knock on doors. He bought an old trolley from Disneyland, spruced it up, and now gives 2-hour tours of Orange’s historical community of vintage homes, complete with food and wine, every Friday night. On a recent outing, workers from 14 restaurants jumped on board throughout the trip with trays full of hors d’ oeuvres and desserts.
The O.C. Wine Trolley tour is the brainchild of real estate broker Al Ricci, top left. When he first began the tour of the city of Orange’s historic district, Ricci cooked the food himself. Now 14 restaurants in Old Towne serve up everything from fancy hors d’oeuvres and grinders to desserts along Ricci’s 2-hour tour of vintage homes and businesses. There’s also a wine steward on board. – O.C. Register
