We totally enjoyed the gourmet lunch with the recommended wines aboard the luxurious wine train. The views were beautiful on the way up Napa Valley to Calistoga. We almost felt like we in Italy again; especially when we were transported from the train to Castello di Amorosa "Castle of Love" for a wine tasting in the most fabulous castle you... More

We had 3 couples on the Wine Train for the afternoon and had a wonderful time. The day was wonderful and the scenery perfect. It was a unique experience. Where else can you ride on a 100 year old train and have a gourmet meal. We brought our own bottle of wine and our server Lexie did a perfect job... More

I can't really say enough about how lovely it is to spend a day in Napa on the Wine Train. The food is great, the service and wine is perfect and you get all this while viewing scenic vineyards in Napa. We were up in Napa for some friends anniversary, the staff was friendly and accommodating and recognized the special... More

Great food, service and wine, while viewing scenic vineyards in Napa, life just doesn't get any better! We did the vista view car, the extra expense was worth it. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The meal was served at a leisurely pace. For dessert, we had the chocolate tiramisu- so yummy. Learning the history of the train was interesting.... More

The train car was beautiful and the seating encourages travelers to interact with each other. The food was good, in that overpriced, "here's a little piece of meat on a big plate" sort of way. We did the trip to Grgich Winery, which was the only winery tour that didn't involve switching to a bus for part of the trip.... More

This was our first trip to Napa. We purchased a package deal of the wine train with lunch and castle tour. They are very well organized, which was very much appreciated by all. We had reservations in the Vista dome car. The food and wine in there were very good. I think this would be fun for a very special... More

My two childhood friends and myself all turned 60 years old this year. To celebrate, we wanted to do something as a new adventure, so we booked the Napa Valley Train Ride for our afternoon experience. We reserved the Silverado car for lunch. This boxcar has open windows and we couldn't have had more perfect weather! What a great time... More

We enjoyed our dinner night train. The food is tasty and love that they are able to cater to most (if not all) diets. I am vegan and was able to have wonderful appetizers, entree and even dessert! The train is beautiful, but it was hard to see much at night time.

The Vista Dome lunch experience again did not disappoint! Over the years Kevin and I found this to be the best way to "settle" into vacation mode. The 2 hour ride with magnificent champagne toast and four course meal never ceases to be one of our best wine country experiences. Gerald our server was not only informative but entertaining as...
