Our Experiences

The Napa Valley Wine Train runs alongside a California vineyard.

Our Experiences

What is a journey to you? Traveling from one place to another? A Wine Train journey is so much more than a tour or an excursion. It’s an unforgettable experience. An elegant train. Plush interiors. Polished, personalized service. And multiple courses of fresh, gourmet California cuisine as the lush vineyards of the Napa Valley landscape pass you by. We bring a bygone era back in a luxuriously vintage setting. Whether you choose lunch, dinner, romance, mystery, or exclusive private tours, it’s a nod to the elegant days of train travel. But there’s nothing tired about these trips.
