The Napa Valley Wine Train Is Back in Business With Onboard Tastings and Gourmet Meals

by Eben Diskin May 17, 2021

The iconic and historic Napa Valley Wine Train is making its big comeback on May 17, and it’s relaunching with a new safe and sanitary environment designed to put passengers at ease. One of the very few active historic passenger railroads in the US, the train is celebrating its reopening by offering free tickets to local healthcare workers in honor of their service and sacrifice this past year.

Steven Lampkin, area director for Noble House Hotels & Resorts, said in a statement: “We are prouder than ever to be part of the Napa Valley community after witnessing its resilience throughout the pandemic and want to express our gratitude to our local healthcare heroes. We are thrilled to bring back our one-of-a-kind experiences for locals and visitors and have implemented numerous safety measures to give passengers peace of mind while enjoying the Wine Train’s world-class dining and picturesque setting.”

The train is relaunching with the Legacy Tour — one of its most popular excursions. The Legacy Tour starts with a sparkling wine tasting, followed by a three-hour ride through Napa Valley, a four-course meal curated by the train’s culinary team, a stop at the Napa Valley sign, and exclusive tastings and tours at Charles Krug and V. Sattui. In addition to the Legacy Tour, the Gourmet Expres, Vista Dome, Grgich Hills Winery Tour, and Murder Mystery Tour will also be available starting in mid-June.
