Seasonal Menu Served Onboard

Expect equally elevated views and cuisine while riding the Vista Dome. Your four-course wine country-inspired meal is served during your journey as you gaze out onto rolling hills, rows of vines, and iconic passing sights.

Pullman Panorama

While riding the Vista Dome during the day, look out and see it all from the second story. Between courses, descend to our other cars and explore what makes each exceptionally unique.

Vista Dome Dinner

There’s romance on the rails for you and your special someone aboard our elegant Vista Dome Dinner experience. As dusk descends, making room for a blanket of stars, you’ll be seated in the panoramic glass-dome dining car for a multi-course gourmet meal paired with a charming vintage atmosphere.

10:30 AM | Your Journey Begins

Your Vista Dome adventure starts at McKinstry Street Station, where you check in with our team and queue to board at the sound of a bell. Here, you can learn more about the Wine Train’s history, peruse the Wine Shop for treasures to take home, or sip a pre-boarding mimosa at The Artist’s Café.

11:00 AM | Welcome Aboard

Once your photo is taken in front of the train by our photography team, you board the train and take your seat in the immersive second-floor Vista Dome. This glass-domed observation-style car surrounds you with unparalleled Valley views from the comfort of plush red velvet booths and tables draped in white cloth.

11:30 AM | Time to Depart

The train departs the station as its whistle calls out. The ambiance continues to build as you enjoy a welcoming glass of bubbly as scenes start to pass and you come upon the first installations of the Rail Arts District.

11:30 - 2:30 | Bon Appétit

You chat with the maître d’, learn from our sommelier, and enjoy the scenery and four palate-pleasing courses. After your indulgences, treats, and feast, you explore the train cars between courses—and even visit our chefs hard at work in our gourmet kitchen.

2:30 PM | Farewell For Now

You saw the sights, you savored it all, and now your three-hour ride comes to an end. We say goodbye and look forward to welcoming you back onboard.

Customer Reviews

Well done!!!

Staff from start to finish, at entry, on the train, even the gift shop, all outgoing and helpful. Well done!!! Just an aside, we did the French Laundry on 2/10. The “experience” was great, but …. if I was offered the chance to do another FL dinner or the Wine Train (especially if the 7-course with pairings is available), I would choose the Wine Train. The food I found to be great — every course.

Lovely & Relaxing

I’m glad we did this on first day of our Napa visit. Gives you a good overview of the area. Our waiter Rick was wonderful.

Vista Dome

Excellent staff and service on board of Vista Dome Train. Views were beautiful, explanations provided were very good!

Dome Experience

Not just a three hour train ride but a great meal, excellent service and a nice wine list. Well worth it if you just like a relaxing gourmet meal.

I’m a 5-Timer!

I have booked the Wine Train during each of my visits to Napa. I’ve done both the lunch and dinner trips, but this was my first Vista Dome experience. We booked it to celebrate our niece’s 23rd birthday. I will say that the price made us pucker a bit, but the experience was amazing. The staff is friendly and professional and the food is always amazing. I NEVER have a bad time on the Wine Train and I will book it again on our next trip to Wine Country!

An Elegant Experience

The Napa Valley Wine Train is a Lifetime memory. My wife and I were fortunate to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary in Napa Valley. My wife planned this part of our trip and I’m so happy she did. We did the Vista Dome Lunch and it was incredible. The comfort and privacy of the Vista Dome makes the elegant experience. The service was fantastic; I appreciated the tour guide letting us know historic facts of buildings, people, and the vineyards. Every course of our gourmet meal was perfectly prepared. I don’t drink but my wife enjoyed the wine. If you want to create a lifetime memory take the time; and invest the money to have a first class experience it was worth every penny.

Fantastic Experience

This train experience was fantastic! Service was amazing, views were amazing, and can’t wait to go back again and experience a different car and ride. Thanks so much Amisha!

Excellent Journey Through Napa Valley

Although a bit pricey, the Wine Train was an excellent choice for part of our Napa Valley weekend. We rode the Vistadome car and it was an good choice for us, as the views were better than we imagine would have been on the other dining cars. The car was immaculately kept and appeared authentic for its time period. The running commentary on the sights in the Valley were good and unobtrusive. Our waitperson, Dino, was superb, explaining to us how each of the menu choices could easily be made vegetarian/vegan. Food was excellent and the beverage choices were sufficient for us, although we are not major wine drinkers. Overall, the experience was great and a wonderful way to see the Valley and the wineries along the route, especially without the hassle of dealing with the traffic along CA-29. Three-hour journey seemed to be an appropriate length of time for the round trip
