Take already sweeping views and make them truly panoramic, practically bringing the lush Napa Valley landscape inside through the curved glass windows of our most popular dining car, the Champagne Vista Dome. You’re welcomed onboard with a glass of California sparkling wine. A precursor to the dining experience ahead.
Our Executive Chef offers an exquisite menu created specifically for this culinary journey. Dine in luxury upstairs and experience the delectable cuisine from our expert team while your selections are artfully prepared in the state-of-the-art kitchen below.
Crisp linens, gleaming silverware, and sparkling glass served in the exclusive ambiance of our 1952 Pullman full dome railcar. Faithfully restored with Honduran mahogany paneling, brass accents, etched glass partitions, and plush armchairs, the Wine Train evokes the spirit of luxury rail travel in the early 1900s.
Since access to the dining area of the Vista Dome Car is limited to guests with reserved seating, this is our most private gourmet dining experience. The Vista Dome is an intimate setting, making it one of our most popular dining experiences.
Choose the Vista Dome for lunch, when the sun is bright and high in the sky. Or for something even more romantic, join us onboard for evening dinner. In the spring and summer, the long, warm California twilight means that when you take your Wine Train journey, Napa Valley’s vineyards are bathed in beautiful, golden hour sunlight for most of the way, with the opportunity to see some spectacular Napa sunsets. In the Fall and the Winter, when the train departs after sunset, you will experience the romance and adventure of an antique train traveling through the dark, starlit Napa Valley night.
Please note that our menu’s change seasonally and additional drinks are not included.
