All aboard the most unique memorable way to experience Napa Valley’s exquisite scenery and best wines—the Napa Valley Wine Train. The fully-operational antique train is powered by two modified 1950s-era engines that run on an eco-friendly combination of natural gas and diesel fuel. The locomotives pull vintage cars that have been refurbished to their original glory, including lush details like polished brass accents, mahogany paneling, and etched glass partitions.
For newcomers, the Napa Valley Wine Train prides itself on immersing patrons in its old-school atmosphere. While the experience remains unchanged, here are eight things to know before booking a visit.
Though the thrill of the ride is a huge part of the experience, the train is primarily a rolling gourmet restaurant with a changing seasonal menu featuring fresh local ingredients prepared in the train’s three fully operational kitchens.
