Overview
This scenic, relaxing Napa Valley wine-tasting experience takes you from San Francisco to downtown Napa to ride the historic Napa Valley Wine Train. Traveling through wine country in a restored antique train, enjoy views of the rolling hills and lush vineyards of St Helena, Oakville, Rutherford and Yountville as you enjoy a gourmet 3-course meal. Hop off the train at the winery of your choice for a guided vineyard tour and tasting session. Choose from three different itineraries to visit Raymond Vineyards, Grgich Hills Estate or Charles Krug Winery to taste the best wine that Napa has to offer!
Highlights
  • Visit Grgich Hills Estate, Charles Krug Winery, or Raymond Vineyards
  • Enjoy a 3-course lunch on the Napa Valley Wine Train from San Francisco
  • Napa wine tour package includes one winery tour and wine tastings 
  • No need to worry about who’s driving—round-trip transport provided
What to Expect
Meet your Napa Valley Wine Train tour at the San Francisco Ferry Building. If it’s a weekday, you take the ferry to Vallejo, and if it’s a weekend, you take a bus. Once in Vallejo, hop aboard a shuttle for the drive to Napa. In Napa, you board the Napa Valley Wine Train, and enjoy great views of the area, as well as a 3-course lunch accompanied by water, coffee, and tea. Depending on which option you chose at checkout, you visit either Grgich Hills Estate, Charles Krug Winery, or Raymond Vineyards for a winery tour and wine tasting. After your day, return to San Francisco the same way you came.
