Grgich Hills Winery Tasting and Wine Train

Toni our tour guide was awesome and kept the crowd in engaged! The wine was wonderful and the train ride worth the price! 

Amazing Lunch Time Ride

Napa Wine train… let’s say it was such an amazing experience. The staff was very knowledgeable about the vineyards and the views were beautiful!. I did the 3 hour Grgich lunch tour and it was worth it. Inside had an antique feel and great for photos!

Lovely Views, Gourmet Meal

From start to finish, this was the perfect day out with 3 dear friends. The booking concierge was so kind and patient helping us select the best experience (one of our party has minor mobility concerns), and even set us up for early boarding. The beautiful Pullman dining car was so pretty we felt like we were on a movie set; we kept looking for Hercule Poirot to appear. The gourmet food choices were all superb, and our server was friendly and helpful. After our spectacular gourmet lunch we disembarked for a fascinating walking tour of Grgich Hills Estates Winery. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and we learned a great deal. And oh, the wine! Excellent tasting selections! Enjoying dessert and coffee after re-boarding the train capped off a perfect day. What’s not to love?!

Amazing Time!

Amazing experience, tour guide, group, and food! We stopped at Grgich Hills Estate which had the best Chardonnay I have ever had!

Wonderful Birthday Celebration!

Awesome birthday celebration. My group choose lunch and a stop at Grgich Winery! A great choice! The stop really added the special touch to the experience. Great service. Good food options. And a special treat for my birthday. We also enjoyed the tastings at the train station before boarding the train. Thanks for the photo backdrops at the station also. Great options for purchase to take after the train ride.
