Captured by You: A Look Back on the Wine Train

December 23, 2022
Tasting & Learning

2022 was a great year aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train! In fact, it may have been the best year yet. It
was a year filled with smiles and good times, but most importantly, it was filled with wine! We offered
seasonal specials like the Santa Train Jolly Journey, fantastic Murder Mystery dinners, multiple-course
meals, afternoon teas, and so much more. Through it all, travelers had the chance to sample some of
the most fantastic wines on Earth while relaxing in the comfort of the Napa Valley Wine Train. And while
they were here, they made plenty of memories. And today, we want to share some of those memories
with you. Let’s take a look at some of the best moments on the train this year, all captured by guests like

Picture Perfect Platform

The photo ops start before you even set foot on the Wine Train. In fact, there’s nothing better than
snapping a photo on our station platform just before boarding the train to start your journey through
Napa Valley!

All aboard the Santa Train! @hnnhcbhr snapped this shot before heading on what she referred to as the
adult version of the Polar Express with our Santa Train!

Golden Hour on the Train:

Watch as Napa Valley’s vineyards glisten in the golden hour sun, allowing you to see some spectacular
Napa sunsets and get the best lighting for photos. These shots speak for themselves.
