Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Dinner

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Hop aboard the famous Napa Valley Wine Train for an unforgettable dining experience! In the late fall and winter, the earlier sunsets mean that most or all of the journey is under the cover of night, making for a very romantic dinner. Travel in comfort aboard refurbished 1915-1917 Pullman Cars that create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and enjoyment while traversing through beautiful Napa wine country to the quaint village of St Helena. On your 3-hour round-trip ride, enjoy picturesque views while dining on meals crafted by Executive Chef Donald Young and freshly prepared on the train using only the freshest ingredients. This is the most relaxing, exclusive way to experience Napa!
  • Relaxing dinner tour via Napa Valley Wine Train 
  • 3-course gourmet meal served on an antique Pullman train car
  • Evening dinner experience with changing views of Napa Valley
  • Escape the crowds at winery tasting rooms with this relaxed evening outing
What to Expect
Find your way to the Napa Valley Wine Train in downtown Napa’s Oxbow District. There, check in and board a refurbished 1915-1917 Pullman train car. Feel free to roam the train’s various cars and look in on the kitchen, where chefs prepare dinner using fresh Northern California ingredients. As the sun sets and dusk falls over the valley, the train rolls through Rutherford, Oakville, and Yountville. Find your assigned seat for dinner. You either enjoy a three-course meal on the way to St. Helena and savor coffee or tea and dessert on the return, or you have appetizers in the lounge cars on the way there and dinner and dessert in the opposite direction. Whichever seating you’re assigned, your meal is served at a private table and you may visit the train’s wine bar (own expense) throughout either leg of your trip. The tour ends at the departure point.

The best food we ate the entire trip! Very relaxing atmosphere. $20 corkage fee if you bring your own wine onto the train. 3 course meal. Every course better than the last! Great date spot. Loved looking around the train and seeing the vineyards.

They give you a glass of Chandon Brut (at least that is what they had when we rode) with the cheese and fruit plate. You may order additional wine if you like.
