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, first seating guests begin their journey in the dining car, enjoying their fresh Sonoma greens or soup du jour and choice of entrée followed by dessert with complimentary coffee or tea in one of the lounge cars on the return trip.

Second-seating guests will sample appetizers and beverages in one of our lounge cars en route to St. Helena, and a choice of soup or salad, entrée, and dessert on the way back to the station. 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.

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