Napa Valley Wine Train Experience
Anum_C, Jun 2021
Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch
Wine Train was absolutely delightful. Loved the food and the extensive options for drinks whether it was wine, spirits, or cocktails. Wish we could’ve stopped at more locations, but due to covid there is limited staff at the wineries that must attend to their customers at hand which is understandable. The servers were very kind and overall it was a great experience and definitely one we’ll do again.

My hubby and I had the best time on our train excursion. The food was amazing! My Salmon was perfect, and the Beef tenderloin was cooked exactly how my husband likes it. The Dessert of creme brulee was Devine 💕 Our servers were attentive and helpful too!! We loved the beautiful scenery as we rode along in the lovely vintage Pullman Cars. We will definitely be back to visit the Napa Valley again and will recommend to our friends to "Ride the Rails"! Thank you for a memorable afternoon!

Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch
Pleasant depot surroundings & people working the counter were very organized. Wonderful vista of Napa Valley & relaxing (we didn’t have to drive it in weekend traffic). Excellent lunch selections/wine pairings. Coffee service a bit slow to coincide with dessert served. Very cooperative wait staff, with the guests & each other. Keeping customer service at the forefront.

Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch
wonderful service, food was great, comfortable all around. The only thing that would have improved the experience is if there was a guide, or a recorded narration, explaining the different winery areas, the history, the process, and so on

The food on the tour was exceptional. Was expecting some commentary about the different vineyards and grape growing harvesting seasons. The train was lovely. All in all would definitely recommend.

How to Get There

Reaching historic Napa by car is relatively easy from anywhere in the Bay Area and the drive from San Francisco to Napa is roughly 52 miles (84 kilometers). As with most major metropolitan areas, leave plenty of time to account for traffic. Those without access to a car may prefer to rent one or opt for a tour that includes round-trip transportation from San Francisco or Vallejo, as public transportation options to Napa are severely limited.

When to Get There

Wildflowers are in full bloom from the end of February through April, adding delightful splashes of color to the landscape. November is the best time to see blond hills and flame-tipped leaves in the height of fall. Visit in summer for the warmest weather and most winery options.
