Package Details

Travel through the lush Napa Valley countryside and be transported back in time. Back to the romance and luxury of the golden age of train travel of the early 1900s, when guests explored the trains beyond their private quarters. Back to a time when a journey was meant to be savored from start to finish. Guests aboard the Gourmet Express experience three delicious courses all served in our exquisite antique Pullman railcars.

Enjoy your leisurely lunch, when the sun is bright and high in the sky and soak in the splendor of the valley.

Heading North, guests begin their journey enjoying their fresh Sonoma greens or soup du jour and choice of entrée followed by dessert with complimentary coffee or tea on the return trip.

Fresh California gourmet meals are crafted by our expert culinary team in one of three onboard kitchens. Located immediately next to each dining area, guests are encouraged to explore the train and visit the kitchen cars and see our chefs in action. Elevate your experience with our Sommelier Flight tasting and discover the flavors of Napa Valley legends: Far Niente, Opus One, and BV, Georges De Latour.

Please note that our menu’s change seasonally and additional drinks are not included.
