We've taken the Wine Train twice - both were gifts. Once was enough, but we went for the ride. Our first ride was about 15 years ago. At that time stopping at Grgich Winery was included in the trip. Wine was also included with our lunch. However this last time we were offered a 'tasting' not even a full glass... More

Booked the Santa Train as my family and I normally do each year, however they said on the phone that there were some changes to the program. In fact, the whole thing is totally different, and frankly not much fun. We used to look forward to having the kids see and sit with Santa for a picture while we waited... More

Over all it was really nice. As your riding along the beautiful sites they tell you many things about the different wineries as you pass them. We had lunch that day, it was O.K but not that much food. We did like that you can walk and to the different cars. Great for groups, or as a couple.

Really enjoyed having Thanksgiving dinner on the Wine Train with my husband, mother-in-law, and best friend. Dinner was superb, as was the service. It was very pleasant and a relaxing alternative to the usual stressful family gathering.

We scheduled the Wine Train for a special Thanksgiving day while visiting Napa. We were lucky to get seats as they were full. My timing must have been good because there was a cancellation. We arrived at the station and had a glass of wine prior to boarding. When I checked in at the desk I asked about the possibility... More

My mother and I had the pleasure of experiencing the Gourmet Lunch last week and we loved it. The Lounge Car experience was great and the Gourmet Lunch was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful time and we will definitely be back to try the Vista Dome experience.

I highly recommend this tour. This was the best option offered because you got to visit 4 wineries as well as enjoy one of the best meals you will have in Napa..The asparagus soup was to die for! Loved the wineries we visited...All was top notch. Staff was amazing!

Go in the Vista Dome, as you get a great view from the big curved windows and the elevated position. The food is great and its hard believe it can be prepared to such high standard on a train. Lovely wines to go with the meal.

Was apprehensive at first about the trip but thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommend the Quattro Tour. The food courses were delicious and beautifully presented. Servers were attentive and informative about passing sights. Liked having a tour guide for our small group at each winery. I learned alot about each winery, their founders and why their wines taste the way they do.... More
