There's something about being on a training, isn't there? And especially when it's paired with great food, good wine and excellent service. That's what you get when you take a trip up valley on the NV Wine Train. Being a local, it's great to take advantage of all the Napa Valley has to offer. And...don't forget your Love Lock (look...

This is a must see while visiting Napa Valley. And if you take the Wine Train you must also plan to have lunch or dinner. The food is fabulous and prepared to order on the train as you travel up or down the valley depending on your dining arrangements. It also has a plan that allows for stopping at a... More

This was a really neat experience. My wife's favorite in our entire trip to Napa. It's very nice, but casual. The food is really good too. We did the vista dome, which was well worth the money because you have an amazing view, and the server gives you kind of a tour of the napa valley as it moves along.

We did the evening dinner trip in the Vista Dome. The food was excellent and there were some nice choices for wine. The staff is very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The cars have been well restored. We walked the entire train after dinner. The other cars are very nice, but the vista car is an experience like no... More

Not a bad experience but not great either. Assigned seating without given any preference - we got a small table for 2 on the sunny side of train - with the sun in my husbands eyes through the whole meal. There were empty larger tables on other side of train but we weren't allowed to move - they remained empty... More

This was my third trip on the Wine Train over the last 10 yrs and it never fails to disappoint. The food was superb and the service was exceptional. Our waiter was not only attentive and efficient but provided us with interesting information on the train, the area, and the wineries. Everyone from the person who made the reservations to... More

We did the gourmet lunch trip, taking the ferry from San Francisco, then the shuttle from Vallejo. Everything about this trip was first class, from the shuttle bus, to the service, to the food and wine. We had a great time beginning to end with the perfect amount of time to look around the town of Napa which we also... More
