An Outstanding Meal for Two

With three onboard kitchens and celebrated chefs, the Napa Valley Wine Train is more of a restaurant than a transportation vehicle.

Our Romance on the Rails experience offers you the chance to enjoy a gourmet multi-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Donald Young complete with sparkling and Private Label wine for two served aboard a historic domed railcar. This intimate dining experience is available by reservation only and seats only 16 parties. Indulge in courses like duck confit, pan-seared Pacific halibut, and chocolate ganache tart.

Decorate a padlock with your initials or a special symbol and lock it to the Love Lock Bridge at the Wine Train's station. You can then toss away the key, or take it home with you as a memento of your romantic time and symbol of your enduring love in Napa.
