The Napa Valley Wine Train is one of the most distinctive Napa restaurants, offering an authentic, memorable experience that echoes the glory days of train travel, with fine dining service, multiple course meals, Napa Valley scenery, and ultimate relaxation aboard exquisitely restored vintage rail cars. This top dining establishment is housed in a museum quality, antique train that runs on 25-­miles of track in the heart of the Napa Valley. The train itself has two engines, three kitchens on board and a collection of early 20th century Pullman rail cars faithfully restored with Honduran mahogany paneling, brass accents, etched glass partitions and plush armchairs that evoke the spirit of luxury rail travel in the early 1900s. Take a trip into the luxurious American past and experience an unparalleled memory-­making journey.

The Grape Stomp at Grgich Hills package during harvest season:

After a multi-course lunch prepared by Chef Rodrigo Cuadra aboard the Wine Train, guests will arrive at Grgich Hills Estate to stomp on freshly picked grapes, just as founder and notorious winemaker Miljenko “Mike” did as a child in Croatia. This is followed by a private tasting of reserve wines. 

The train departs from its downtown Napa station at 11:30 a.m. for the one-hour train journey to Grgich Hills Estate. The first two courses are served before arriving at 12:30 p.m.

Only two table groupings are sold each day to provide guests with dedicated attention from a wine educator. 

Guests re-board the train at 1:30 p.m. for coffee service and dessert for the return trip to Napa, deboarding at 2:30 p.m. 

Tickets start at $485 per person and are offered Sunday through Thursday from Sept. 4 through Oct. 15.
