If you’re looking for new ideas about how to boost wine tourism, look no further than the Napa Valley Wine Train, which has always been one of the most distinctive restaurants in California’s Napa Valley region. The restaurant combines a fine dining experience with an extended train journey to some of Napa Valley’s most iconic wineries.
The whole idea of the Napa Valley Wine Train is to offer an authentic, memorable experience that echoes the glory days of train travel. To do so, the Napa Valley Wine Train offers fine dining service, multiple course meals, Napa Valley scenery and relaxation aboard lovingly restored vintage rail cars. And now the Napa Valley Wine Train has announced the expansion of its Quattro Vino tour and tasting program, which will include three new offerings – the Legacy, Estate, and Collective journeys.
Quattro Vino tours begin with a welcome sparkling wine tasting upon embarkation from the downtown Napa McKinstry Street Station. Then, during the course of the next six hours, guests enjoy a four-course Napa Valley dining experience aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train, curated by Executive Chef Donald Young, while visiting some of Napa’s most iconic wineries. Of course, there’s plenty of time for conversation with other guests, as well as many opportunities to build relationships with fellow wine lovers.
The three programs newly added include The Legacy Tour with tastings and tours at Robert Mondavi Winery, Charles Krug Winery and V. Sattui Winery; The Estate Tour with tastings and tours at Domain Chandon, HALL Napa Valley and Inglenook; and The Collective Tour with tastings and tours at Raymond Vineyards, Beringer Vineyards and St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery.
The whole idea of the Napa Valley Wine Train is to evoke the glamor of early 20th century rail travel, while giving guests a chance to sample some of the finest wines in Napa Valley. This is more than just a four-course meal and tasting - it is a rolling adventure that features stops at some of Napa Valley’s most iconic wineries. Each of these immersions into Napa Valley wine culture comes aboard the beautifully renovated 1915-vintage Pullman railcars.
Yes, that’s right, this dining establishment is housed in a museum quality, antique train that runs on 25-miles of track in the heart of Napa Valley. The train itself has two engines, three kitchens on board, and a collection of early 20th century Pullman rail cars faithfully restored with Honduran mahogany paneling, brass accents, etched glass partitions and plush armchairs that evoke the spirit of luxury rail travel in the early 1900s.
During the Fall, the Napa Valley Wine Train will continue to roll on, giving visitors to one of the most famous wine regions in the world a chance to experience California’s top wineries in new and distinctive ways. If you’re looking for a way to learn more about Napa Valley wineries and have the experience of a lifetime, it’s time to book a ticket and hop aboard.
