Take a ride on the Napa Valley Wine Train, including lunch, during this 11-hour tour from San Francisco. After transportation via ferry and shuttle from San Francisco, climb aboard the restored antique train to enjoy a gourmet, locally-sourced lunch and wine pairing. Travel through the Napa Valley's rolling vineyards for 3 hours towards the charming town of St Helena.
Arrive at the Ferry Building in San Francisco to board a ferry (Monday-Friday) or bus (weekends) to Vallejo. In Vallejo, transfer to a shuttle that will take you to the starting point of the Napa Valley Wine Train.
Climb aboard the antique restored train, where you'll be shown to your seat and poured a welcome glass of wine. Relax and enjoy the views out of the train's large glass windows as it travels north through Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford on the route to St Helena.
Take a break from the gazing at the scenery to explore the antique train. Visit the kitchen car to watch your gourmet lunch being prepared or stop by the lounge car to enjoy a cocktail or another glass of wine (own expense.)
Choose the first or second lunch seating (see Schedule & Pricing below for details.) The menu is seasonal, and features fresh, in-season ingredients (see Itinerary below for a sample menu.) The highly-acclaimed restaurant uses sustainable meat and produce and sources ingredients from within the Napa Valley whenever possible.
Hop off the Wine Train in St Helena in the early evening to board the shuttle for Vallejo, and take the ferry or bus back to San Francisco.
I absolutely loved this tour. I recommend it to everyone.
Very disappointed with this trip the food was excellent, however, the rest was a letdown, and certainly not worth the price paid.
Great way to see the wine country. Beautiful!
