See the Napa Valley wine region the carefree way on this train ride and dinner tour. Sip local wines (own expense), eat a gourmet meal and watch the scenic landscape roll by, all without needing to designate a driver or plan an itinerary. Simply relax in an elegant early 1900s-era Pullman train car while taking in the rolling hills and picturesque towns on the round-trip ride to St. Helena.

    Napa Valley Wine Train
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Travel through the lush Napa Valley countryside and be transported back in time. Back to the romance and luxury of the golden age of train travel of the early 1900s, when guests explored the trains beyond their private quarters. Back to a time when a journey was meant to be savored from start to finish. Guests aboard the Gourmet Express experience both dining and lounge service, with some courses of your gourmet meal served in each car. Heading North, first seating guests begin their journey in the dining car, enjoying their fresh Sonoma greens or soup du jour and choice of entrée—roasted tenderloin of beef, lemon thyme roasted chicken, or gemelli pasta among them—followed by dessert with complimentary coffee or tea in one of the lounge cars on the return trip. Second seating guests sample appetizers and beverages in one of our lounge cars en route to St. Helena, and choice of soup or salad, entrée, and dessert on the way back to the station. Fresh California gourmet meals are crafted by Executive Chef Donald Young and his passionate culinary team in one of three onboard kitchens. Located immediately next to each dining area, guests are encouraged to explore the Train and visit the kitchen cars and see our chefs in action. In the spring and summer, the long, warm California twilight means that when you take your Wine Train journey, Napa Valley’s vineyards are bathed in beautiful, golden hour sunlight for most of the way, with the opportunity to see some spectacular Napa sunsets. In the Fall and the Winter, when the train departs after sunset, you will experience the romance and adventure of an antique train traveling through the dark, starlit Napa Valley night.

What to Expect
Find your way to the Napa Valley Wine Train in downtown Napa’s Oxbow District. There, check in and board a refurbished 1915-1917 Pullman train car. Feel free to roam the train’s various cars and look in on the kitchen, where chefs prepare dinner using fresh Northern California ingredients. As the sun sets and dusk falls over the valley, the train rolls through Rutherford, Oakville, and Yountville. Find your assigned seat for dinner. You either enjoy a three-course meal on the way to St. Helena and savor coffee or tea and dessert on the return, or you have appetizers in the lounge cars on the way there and dinner and dessert in the opposite direction. Whichever seating you’re assigned, your meal is served at a private table and you may visit the train’s wine bar (own expense) throughout either leg of your trip. The tour ends at the departure point.

After a wonderful experience 2 years ago, we returned to the wine train to celebrate a family birthday. It was a spectacular trip - just like before. The centerpiece of our jaunt was the gourmet meal. My wife ordered grilled salmon & I called for beef tenderloin. Our choices

We took an evening train - so a dinner. The food was good, but certainly not outstanding or exceptional. Measured against the cost of the whole package our conclusion was it is very overpriced for what is provided. The cost for three of us was USD 625. For that we each had a

We were so excited for our wine train experience. The food was great but the service in the dessert car was less than stellar. We were in the car with a handful of other couples. 20 mins before the end of the ride we were ushered out to leave the car to leave when the train

Our dinner was delicious. I was surprised it didn't include wine, since you're on the "wine train", but I'm not a wine person, so that was fine. Plus, you could purchase wine or bring your own for a $20 cork fee. So,it wasn't a big deal. You might just want to be aware, that
