Swanson VineyardsSeptember 26th, 11:30 AM
Swanson Vineyards is a family winery founded on a passion for evolving the existing standards of wine and food. In the 1950s, long before founding Swanson Vineyards, the Swanson family introduced the first lifestyle product, Swanson frozen dinners, which helped women get out of the kitchen and enjoy life. In 1985, at his 25th Stanford University reunion, W. Clarke Swanson, Jr. was inspired by a tip from a fraternity brother and successful vintner to purchase a parcel of vineyard land on the Oakville Cross Road in the heart of Napa Valley. Join Swanson's Winemaker Chris Phelps on board The Napa Valley Wine Train for a memorable afternoon of delicious wine, paired artfully with Executive Chef Kelly Macdonald's superb cuisine, as you enjoy the fabulous vistas of the Napa Valley glide slowly by. http://winetrain.com/events/vintners-lunch/swanson-vineyards

Harvest MoonOctober 9th, 6:30 PM
Share the magic of the Napa Valley in October as the sun sets at 6:41 pm. Enjoy your entire evening bathed in moonlight. This moon is named the 'Full Harvest Moon' because farmers can spend the entire night harvesting their crops by the light of this moon. 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
Vintner's LunchOctober 10th, 11:30 AM
Judd's Hill, tucked amidst the beautiful vines of Napa Valley, is owned and operated by two generations of the Finkelstein family. Art, Bunnie, Judd and Holly Finkelstein are vintners dedicated to producing ultra-premium, handcrafted wines. The family has been making wine in Napa Valley since the 1970's and continues to produce signature wines that are fruit-driven, concentrated and just simply delicious. Taking an intimate and personal approach to winemaking, Judd's Hill limits annual production to less than 3,000 cases. Their popular MicroCrush winemaking service offers custom winemaking and Bottle Blending Day Camp experiences for individuals and groups. Enjoy the artful pairing of these MicroCrush wines with Chef's gourmet cuisine.
