  • The Legacy Tour

Overview

A legacy is handed down over time, through family and tradition. And lots and lots of wine. Robert Mondavi. Charles Krug. V. Sattui. The legacy of these Italian families represents a combined winemaking history of more than 300 years. And some very fine vintages. Some say this is where it all began. And this is where your journey begins.

Down The Line

Full Day Tours are an indulgence start to finish. Elegant interiors. Plush velvet. Gleaming brass. Sleek fixtures. Smooth marble. The train car, rattling at an easy pace through extraordinary Napa countryside. Sweeping rows of vines, some there since 1868, whisper stories. By now you’ll have more than a few stories of your own to tell. By the time you come to the end of the line, you don’t want your journey to end.

But first, sparkling wine. Lemon mascarpone crepes, roasted maple bacon, and oven basted egg with salmon roe and buttered croutons. And an intimate group of happy eager travelers, along with you on your journey. Who knew breakfast with strangers could be so delightful.

Back on board, it’s time for some difficult decisions: Cracked mustard-cider glazed salmon or grilled tenderloin of beef with pastrami spices and truffle potato salad? Whatever you order, luxurious ambiance is always served.

Second Stop, Charles Krug Winery

Go behind the scenes at iconic Charles Krug for a private tour of Napa Valley’s oldest winery and a sampling in California’s first tasting room. From the moment you set foot inside the beautiful Redwood Cellar to your last sip, hear the fascinating history of the Mondavi and Krug families.
