Napa Valley Wine Train Experience
Anum_C, Jun 2021
Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch
Wine Train was absolutely delightful. Loved the food and the extensive options for drinks whether it was wine, spirits, or cocktails. Wish we could’ve stopped at more locations, but due to covid there is limited staff at the wineries that must attend to their customers at hand which is understandable. The servers were very kind and overall it was a great experience and definitely one we’ll do again.

Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch
Great experience. Food was delicious. Only thing on the. Website they didn’t mention was that the cafe at the station is not open now, we got there thinking to have coffee something small before going on the train. But the experience was amazing.

Great experience but expensive for no wine included

Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch
I did love the experience and I had heard that it was a fun thing to do while in the area. My only complaint would be that I thought for the cost that there was a wine paring provided with each course and they were included in the cost. The champagne at the start was the only item included. For the high price that was shocking to me. I would suggest that you try to include at least 1-2 options with the meal as a pairing to make the experience even better.

Seeing the Napa Valley while enjoying the delicious food. All was excellent however, I thought it was going to include a wine or tasting since the expense was greater than on advertised.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The wine train ride is a perfect romantic excursion for travelers 21 and up.

  • Dress for heat or wind (depending on the time of year) if you plan to sit on the deck.

  • Bring proper photo identification for wine tastings.

  • Dressing up is recommended, but many opt for more casual attire.

  • All Napa Valley Wine Train tours depart from downtown Napa, but some tour packages include round-trip transfers from San Francisco or Vallejo.

  • Look out for special tasting room events such as the Murder Mystery dinner tour.

How to Get There

Reaching historic Napa by car is relatively easy from anywhere in the Bay Area and the drive from San Francisco to Napa is roughly 52 miles (84 kilometers). As with most major metropolitan areas, leave plenty of time to account for traffic. Those without access to a car may prefer to rent one or opt for a tour that includes round-trip transportation from San Francisco or Vallejo, as public transportation options to Napa are severely limited.

When to Get There

Wildflowers are in full bloom from the end of February through April, adding delightful splashes of color to the landscape. November is the best time to see blond hills and flame-tipped leaves in the height of fall. Visit in summer for the warmest weather and most winery options.

Best Vineyards in Napa Valley

Napa Valley is dotted with vineyards but some stand out over the rest. The Chateau Montelena Winery is revered for its beautiful grounds, including ivy-covered facades, while Pine Ridge is beloved for its peace and quiet. Round Pond Estate, meanwhile, has a gorgeous terrace, perfect for long, wine-filled lunches.
