The Napa Valley Wine Train offers a thirty-six mile round trip journey from the top wine growing regions of Napa to St. Helena and back, which brings you not only a gorgeous view, but also a delicious multi-course meal and delectable wines.
The Northern California railroad track was built in 1864 and was later converted into a wine train in 1989.
Day-trippers can choose from four winery tours that include a lunch and winery tour: The Castle winery tour ($266 per person) at the Castello di Amorosa, the whimsical Raymond winery tour ($206 person), the Grgich Hills winery tour ($206 per person) that evokes a feeling of the French countryside, and Ambassador winery tour ($266 per person), which brings you to the oldest winery in Napa valley.
Passengers can also try one of the special packages that the train offers, like a romantic night time ride with a significant other at Romance on the Rails ($271 per person), which includes a multiple course dinner, a welcome glass of sparkling wine, two glasses of a private label wine, and a 3-hour ride in the Vista Dome for the best view possible.
The train also offers a Murder Mystery ride ($237 per person) on certain Fridays of the month, taking advantage of the train’s authentic vintage cars and decor. Wine connoisseurs can also take advantage of the train’s Meet The Maker series ($269 per person) and join winemakers as they discuss their trade.
And it’s not just the wine that will entice you to come aboard. The train has three onboard kitchens with dozens of chefs diligently preparing each meal by hand — bringing you the best in fine dining to pair with your vino.
Trips generally last between three and six hours, but times may vary based on the type of tour. The train runs every day, and you can find the various schedules on Napa Valley’s website.
And while the tours are’t exactly cheap, you’re definitely paying for the experience.
