Napa Valley Wine Train: Gourmet Express Lunch or Dinner

1. Napa Valley Wine Train: Gourmet Express Lunch or Dinner

Travel through the lush Napa Valley countryside and experience the pleasures of the past. Back to the romance and luxury of the golden age of train travel of the early 1900s, when guests explored the trains beyond their private quarters. Back to a time when a journey was meant to be savored from start to finish. Guests aboard the Gourmet Express experience both dining and lounge service, with some courses of the gourmet meal served in each car. Heading North, you will start the journey in the dining car, enjoying a delicious multiple course meal followed by dessert with complimentary coffee or tea in one of the lounge cars on the return trip. Fresh California gourmet meals are crafted by the chef and his passionate culinary team in one of three onboard kitchens. Located immediately next to each dining area, you will be encouraged to explore the train, visit the kitchen cars and see the chefs in action. Choose the Gourmet Express for lunch when the sun is bright and high in the sky. For something even more romantic, come onboard for the evening dinner. In the spring and summer, Napa Valley’s vineyards are bathed in beautiful, golden hour sunlight for most of the way, with the opportunity to see some spectacular Napa sunsets. In the Fall and the Winter, when the train departs after sunset, you will experience the romance and adventure of an antique train traveling through the dark, starlit Napa Valley night.

What people are saying about Napa

Tessa was wonderful, made us feel like friends! All 3 wineries were unique and good experiences. I was unable to decide where to go so we decided to let a guide take us around Sonoma, it was perfect! Take this tour and skip the frustration! There really are no bad wineries or wine but hard to pick from over 300 wineries!! Paul and Lisa Rossi

Selection of winery’s were exactly what we were looking for. Our driver and guide , Jason, was ‘over the top’. He was just great. Can’t say enough about him. Knowledgeable of the entire Napa area. Did not just drive - he pointed out the history of the area. Would definitely use this company again.

We took the Platypus Tours winery tour. We visited 3 winery’s and had lunch at one of them. I believe we tasted 5 variety at each stop. Got to walk in the vineyards and taste the grapes as well as go into the barrel room. Amazing trip

Courtney chose two outstanding vineyards/wineries and one that was okay. She was delightful, informative, and humble. We loved Auburn James Winery!

Gracious service. Wonderfully prepared meals. Everyone is cheerful and friendly.
