Great trip and wonderful service! This was the first time that my wife and I were taking the Wine Train. We were bringing family from New England as our guests so we purchased the lunch trip in the Dome Car. The Welcome to the Wine Train presentation was outstanding as no one knew what to expect. It was informative and... More

If you want to step into a time machine and enjoy attentive service with great food and wine -- you must try Wine Train for dinner ride. They have recreated ~1915's Pullman lounge car and dinning car -- all hard wood, fitted with era appropriate décor and paintings. The staff are vey friendly and attentive -- they are there to...

We were spending a week with another couple in San Francisco and they wanted to ride the train. They wanted the Vista Dome experience but it had been booked sold out for a month and a half. We bought Gourmet Train tickets for four and showed up in Napa an hour early. I asked the staff to sell us an... More

Located in the downtown Napa. Train takes patrons down the tracks to explain the area a bit. Train offers various cars to which one can sit in. One can also buy packages to which one is dropped off at a winery next to the tracks. There is a night and there is a day train. Tip: Depending on time of... More

From the moment one books your tickets,through to the arrival on the day of the train ride, the whole experience is wonderful.The ticket agents, the information video helped me to see what the best choice was for our group of four. On the day of the actual trip, we found the train station with little difficulty and chose the night... More

This was a wonderful quite and enjoyable day. We got the champagne dome train so we were treated like royalty. Food, server, drinks, ambiance all was outstanding. After visiting the wineries for a few days, it is a good way to die down and enjoy the scenery and be treated. I would recommend this ride.

My wife and I visited Napa for the first time this year. We booked the Train early so we wouldn't get shut out. The experience was fabulous! The lunch fare was perfectly paired with a wonderful wine selection, and desert in the lounge car was spot on. The tour of the castle was very interesting and informative. The entire experience...

We were 5 sisters who took the wine train during our Napa visit and loved it. We paid a little more for the dome vista car and sat up high with incredible views. We had a table for 4 and a table for 2 across the aisle so we were sitting together. The service was elegant and impeccable and the... More
