Building a Legacy: The Napa Valley Wine Train Legacy Tour

March 6, 2020
Tasting & Learning

What makes a glass of fine wine even finer? An appreciation and understanding of what’s behind it—how it’s made, what it’s made from, and the rich history that tells the fascinating story of how it came to be. Boasting some of the world’s most mature wineries, Napa Valley is a wine and culture lover’s paradise—and our Legacy Tour will satisfy your craving for knowledge, experience, and of course, wine and exceptional local cuisine.

 Experience Napa Valley’s Most Historic Wineries

Napa Valley Wine Train’s Legacy Tour is designed for the wine aficionado and history buff who appreciates the story behind each glass. With insider access to some of Napa’s most acclaimed wineries and exclusive tastings of their iconic wines, you’ll learn as you sip while touring three historic Napa Valley vineyards.

Sleek and modern bar and tasting room.

Your touring will kick off at Robert Mondavi Winery, one of Napa Valley’s most sought-after destinations. Known for being named The Best Vineyard in North America, as well as its over 50-year history of producing innovative, unique wines, Robert Mondavi is a must-visit vineyard (and its Fumé Blanc, an evolution of a classic Sauvignon Blanc is a must-try while in the region).

Next stop is Charles Krug, Napa Valley’s oldest vineyard. Experience a tasting in California’s first tasting room and let the winery’s enchanting redwood cellar sweep you off your feet while you dive into the history of the Krug family, collecting knowledge through interesting anecdotes.

Finally, you’ll finish your wine tour with V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena, located in the heart of Napa Valley. An award-winning producer of small-batch wines, you’ll love learning about the history of this vineyard, founded in 1885, and enjoying some of the region’s most favored wines before hopping on the train for dessert.

Start with a Napa Valley Breakfast, End With a Dessert

Speaking of dessert, our Legacy Tour involves a Napa Valley-style four-course meal, spread throughout your journey so you stay nourished while tasting your way through our region’s most historic wineries.

In Napa Valley, we start the day with a beautiful glass of sparkling wine—can you imagine it any other way? As you board the train at 10:15 a.m., sipping your bubbly, taking in the lush scenery, and preparing for a day of once-in-a-lifetime touring, you’ll smell the most delicious breakfast scents leaving the kitchen car and arriving right in front of you. Lemon mascarpone crêpes, roasted maple bacon, oven-basted egg with salmon roe and buttered croutons—this is no average meal, which makes sense, since the Napa Valley Wine Train Legacy Tour is no average wine tour.

After breakfast, you’ll tour your first winery, then when you board the train once again, you’ll experience your next course. Three wineries, four delicious courses created carefully by our on-board chef. It’s a day that wine and food lovers’ dreams are made of.
