As many of you know, I was lucky enough to pop over to Napa for an awesome trip filled with wine, wine and a little bit more wine. One of the highlights of the trip was getting to take a full day excursion on the historic <a href="http://Wine Access“>Napa Valley Wine Train. Wow, I have to say, I was totally blown away by this fun, educational and relaxing experience.
The historic train takes of from downtown Napa and is an easy walk from many of the downtown hotels. Upon arrival, you check into a train depot, then board for your specific tour. We selected the Quattro Vino Legacy Tour which included a four course meal and guided tours at 3 well know wineries in the valley. Upon boarding the historic train you are greeted with a bubbly tasting of champagne and seated in a comfy velvet booth with beautiful marble features and shiny brass fixtures.
As the train slowly and smoothly departed the station, we were served our first course as we started the journey to the first winery. The train takes a slow and steady pace so you get sweeping views of the countryside making the journey just completely breath taking. There were two attentive servers that serviced the cart, and they were on top of each request, and the train offers an excellent wine menu to help keep you hydrated during your journey!
The pace of the day is absolutely perfect and includes lots of yummy food with guided winery tours tucked in between. We loved how the winery guides greeted you right as you exited the train and each were highly educated about the history and details behind the wines you are tasting. The tours were just long enough and each allowed for extra time to walk around on your own prior to boarding the train for the next stop!
As I’m sure you can tell, I would highly recommend The Napa Valley Wine Train to anyone headed to the Napa Valley. The romantic atmosphere and gourmet meals combined with the interesting guided wine tours tops a van tour any day!
