Fodor's Expert Review Napa Valley Wine Train
Guests on this Napa Valley fixture ride the same 150-year-old rail corridor along which trains once transported passengers as far north as Calistoga's spas. The rolling stock includes restored Pullman cars and a two-story Vista Dome coach with a curved glass roof. The train travels a leisurely, scenic route between Napa and St. Helena. Patrons on some tours enjoy a multicourse meal and tastings at one or more wineries. Some rides involve no winery stops, and themed trips are occasionally scheduled. It's best to make this trip during the day, when you can enjoy the vineyard views.
