Napa Valley Wine Train Tour

I’ve done your basic tour of the wine country before but it wasn’t anything like the Napa Valley Wine Train Tour.  This tour serves you perfect pairings of wine and gourmet food while riding in vintage rail cars.  How cool is that?

The 36-mile round trip  journey travels through Napa, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and back. It allows you to choose what type of meal you would like.  You can choose a four-course meal in the Dining car, a romantic moonlight dinner in the Vista Dome or an open-air, ala-carte meal in Silverado car. These experiences cater to a wide-range of budgets and tastes in order to make the tour fit your needs.

The tour hosts many different events throughout the year: a Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre, where professional actors dressed in 1915-era costumes mingle with the guests; a weekly Vinter’s Lunch, where a special guest vinter works with the train’s chef and wine director to plan a four-course meal; and many other special events that feature wines from around the globe.  These events are kinda pricey, but well worth it if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience.

    WOW This looks perfect. Have you done it before/do you plan to do this? It looks like exactly the kind of thing I would want to do. Thanks!

  2. I plan on doing it next time I make it to the Bay area. I’ve seen the tour featured on the Travel Channel before and it looks so relaxing!

  3. Thank you for the lovely write up and comments. At the risk of being self-promoting, we have an amazing package with the Hilton Garden Inn — 2 nights, lunch on the train with a winery tour to Domaine Chandon, plus a pass to several wineries — no tasting fee. Package price is $450 for two people for two days. Details: http://winetrain.com/hilton-garden-inn.php

    We hope to see you soon.
