Relaxing view of the Napa Valley

Fun train cars make this an event that takes you back in time while enjoying the creature comforts of modern dinning with fabulous wines to sample. Perhaps allowing you the chance to say "I have a new favorite"

We visited napa wine valley in July 2014 and the train ride with meals was good. Though I feel the train ride was over priced. Visited other wine areas and tasted different types of wine . But nothing was free though it says free wine tasting

Went on the train today (Wednesday) and had an amazing trip. From the ease of checking in and throughout the trip this was a great experience. I wish I could recall the name of our waitress (for the gourmet lunch) but I can't. But that doesn't take away from the wonderful service we received. She was friendly, attentive and knowledgable...

My husband and I have been wanting to experience the NVW for a while and we figured what was a better time than our 1st wedding anniversary! We booked the Vista Dome and it was wonderful! It was relaxed but elegant at the same time. When we arrived they gave us hot hand towels to cleanse with before our meal.... More

We took the tour of Grgrich winery and it was fun and educational. Love the Grgich wines. Our tour guide was very attentive and was also... More

great train ride through the ghetto of Napa. Overpriced and over rated. No locals will do this more than once. It goes on the same track both ways and is mostly traveling along freeway or run down neighborhoods. Firget it and rent a car to St helena

Thank you for joining us from Sacramento. We always appreciate it when our neighbors ride with us and give us the opportunity to share our Valley with them anew. The Wine Train offers locals a new perspective at a slower pace along with a great meal and way to enjoy the Napa Valley with a glass of wine in hand.... More

We went on this wine train, while in Napa with another couple, and were very impressed with the experience. You have a wine tasting while traveling slowly through wine country. As you gently roll past various vineyards, you really feel a part of the atmosphere. The train was extremely clean, the service was fantastic, and the food was great. The... More
