A legacy is handed down over time, through family, tradition, and lots of wine. Your first tasting occurs onboard our open-air car by your on-board Maitre’ D at the Napa Valley Welcome Sign, where upon concluding the tasting you will disembark for a photo opportunity at this legendary landmark. The legacy of Charles Krug Winery and V. Sattui Winery represents a combined winemaking history of over 200 years and some very fine vintages. Some say this is where it all began, and this is where your journey begins.

Down The Line

Full Day Experiences are an indulgence start to finish. Elegant interiors. Plush velvet. Gleaming brass. Sleek fixtures. Smooth marble. The train car, rattling at an easy pace through extraordinary Napa countryside. Sweeping rows of vines, some there since 1868, whisper stories. By now you’ll have more than a few stories of your own to tell. By the time you come to the end of the line, you don’t want your journey to end. Please note that our menu’s change seasonally and additional drinks are not included.

First Stop, Photo Op

Visit the famous Welcome to Napa Valley billboard, built in 1949 to bring awareness to the valley. This Insta-worthy stop at the Oakville landmark includes a tasting of three premium wines.

The Menu

Back on board, it’s time for some difficult decisions: Cracked mustard-cider glazed salmon or grilled tenderloin of beef with pastrami spices and truffle potato salad? Whatever you order, luxurious ambiance is always served.

Second Stop, Charles Krug Winery

Go behind the scenes at the iconic Charles Krug Winery and experience Napa Valley’s oldest winery with a sampling in California’s first tasting room. From the moment you set foot inside the beautiful Redwood Cellar to your last sip, hear the fascinating history of the Mondavi and Krug families.

The Menu

Back on board, indulge in your third course—whipped Marin County brie with local honey, country olives, fennel pollen, and a ciabatta crisp—a divine savory palate pleaser on your journey to our last winery. Be sure to savor the extraordinary Napa Valley landscape with every bite.

Last Stop, V. Sattui Winery

Next stop, V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena, in the heart of Napa Valley. Learn about the deep roots of this historic family and get a behind the scenes glimpse into the winery, which was founded in 1885, closed during the Prohibition, and is now an award-winning producer of small batch wines.

Last But Not Least

Then the journey back, indulge in your final course—dessert. Our pastry chef’s daily creation, to be exact. Whether it’s sweet or savory…or a bit of both, the real treat is the journey you’ve just had. Because it’s one you’ll never forget.
