Five Ways to Celebrate Your Love in Napa Valley
February 10, 2023
Are you looking to plan a day of romance with the one you love? There's something about the endless vineyards and golden horizon of Napa Valley that screams "Romantic Getaway". And the gift of an experience with that special someone is the best gift of all. So follow us as we take a look into the five fantastic ways to celebrate your love in Napa Valley.
Lock It Up and Throw the Key Away!
When riding on the Wine Train, you can look forward to adding your lock to our love lock bridge with your one and only. This practice is performed worldwide, perhaps most famously in Paris. Here in Napa Valley, we were inspired to create our own take on the Love Lock Bridge to help bring people together in this special place. This bridge pays tribute to your forever bond once you secure that lock together. You can choose from decorating your lock with your initials, names, or a special date the two of you share. When you're ready, secure the lock on the bridge and toss the keys away (or keep them as a souvenir!).
If you're looking for a full-day experience to celebrate your love, look no further than The Legacy Experience! Spend time on the train enjoying a gourmet four-course meal before heading to tastings at Charles Krug and V. Sattui wineries, where you will have the opportunity to learn about the history of winemaking over the last 200 years while tasting some of the finest sips Napa Valley has to offer. In between glasses, make sure to catch the photo op at the iconic Napa Valley Welcome Sign. After this six-hour wine-filled adventure, you might need a NAPA!
Love On The Vista Dome
All aboard the ultimate perfect date activity in Napa Valley — Our Vista Dome Car! With incredible panoramic glass dome windows, you'll have breathtaking views for the full duration of your ride. Enjoy a welcome glass of the finest sparkling wine upon boarding the train as you prepare for the 36-mile journey aboard the two-story train car. With this experience, you can choose between lunch or dinner rides — whichever suits your ideal date style best. No matter what ride you decide on, you will be treated to lush scenery that brings dinner with a view to a whole new level!
A Weekend of Love in Napa
Fully immerse yourself in Napa for a weekend. Nothing says romance like a weekend getaway in Wine Country. We've worked with our partner properties to create hassle-free Napa Valley vacations with our fabulous hotel packages. Enjoy a full day of wine tours followed by a weekend indulging in some of the most delightful food and drink you've ever had. With our Candlelight Junction package, you can now enjoy two nights at the Candlelight inn, a full day of Wine Tours with Platypus Tours, and, of course, a 3-hour journey aboard our vintage Wine Train to tie the weekend together. What more could you ask for?!
If you want to stay longer than a weekend, book two nights or more at the River Terrace Inn with our Adventure on the Riverfront package! This inn is just steps from the Wine Train, making for easy access when the time comes for your multiple-course gourmet lunch while traveling on the rails! Didn't think it could get any better? Well, it does! Make sure to check out our ALBA restaurant during your stay for 15% off small plates and sips when you join us for a Wine Train experience.
The Wine and Dine of your Dreams
If you're looking for a shorter experience in Napa but still want to stay the night, the Wine, Dine, and Dream package may be exactly what you're looking for! We partnered with the Hilton Garden Inn to offer you a multiple-course gourmet lunch on our vintage train, followed by an overnight stay. After your Wine Train experience, explore Napa Valley and all it has to offer before heading back to the Garden Inn, located just minutes from the train station.
