Vintner's DinnerAugust 8th, 6:30 PM
Jericho Canyon Vineyards
Jericho Canyon is a rugged area at the northeast end of the Napa Valley in the Mt. St. Helena foothills. It benefits from very hot summer days moderated by cool nights and chilly mornings. Jericho Canyon Vineyard is a small family-owned winery producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, and Sauvignon Blancs anywhere in Napa Valley. Meet owners Marla and Dale Bleecher, and enjoy several of their delicious wines, along with a sumptuous multi-course tasting menu paired by Executive Chef Kelly Macdonald. You will experience an afternoon of fun in our 1952 glass enclosed Vista Dome car on board The Napa Valley Wine Train as you enjoy the fabulous vistas of the Napa Valley glide slowly by. http://www.jerichocanyonvineyard.com
Red MoonAugust 10th, 6:30 PM
Share the magic of the Napa Valley in August as the sun sets at 8:10 pm. This moon is named the 'Full Red Moon' because as the moon rises it can appear reddish through a hot, sultry haze. Our Moonlight Escape gourmet dinner takes place upstairs in the Vista Dome rail car with its almost 180-degree view. Guests glide over the evening vineyards touched with the silver light of the rising moon. This is a five-course dinner, including a glass of sparkling wine. There is seating for only 24 couples. http://winetrain.com/events/moonlight-escape
