Exceptional service, food, atmosphere and winery visits. I cannot think of one thing that needs improved. Just the right amount of time at the wineries. The staff was great and the food fabulous. Highly recommend.

Our wine tour to Raymond was fine but the train was off the hook! Food was delicious and elegant. Our party had the steak and salmon. Both tasty. Only funny thing wine is not included on the “wine” train. Lol.

Expensive, but quite a treat for my wife and me. The train ride was at a nice leisurely pace and the food presentation and quality was very good. Each of the 3 winery tours and wine tastings were great!
