The Napa Valley Wine Train takes you on a 36-mile round trip to St. There are several different options when it comes to train tours. They offer half-day tours, full-day tours, train trips with lunch or dinner, and special events such as a murder mystery train ride. The price usually depends on the day of the week you decide to go (it will be cheaper on weekdays).
I think the most popular options for the wine train are half-day and full-day tours because you actually get off the train and tour the wineries of the Napa Valley. If these are the two options you are deciding between, keep in mind that the half-day tours last approximately 3 hours in total and take you to a winery with lunch. Full-day tours last up to 6 hours and take you to up to 3 different wineries with a full 4-course meal on board. I ended up choosing one of the full-day tours simply because it included a lot more for the price.
All Napa Valley Wine Train tours depart from downtown Napa, but some tour packages include roundtrip transfers from San Francisco or Vallejo. If you haven't heard of the Napa Valley Wine Train, it's essentially a train that takes you through the Napa Valley, California. The wine train was not a party bus with loud music and dancing; it was a very quiet and relaxing environment. Getting to historic Napa by car is relatively easy from anywhere in the Bay Area and the journey from San Francisco to Napa is approximately 52 miles (84 kilometers).
Chateau Montelena Winery is revered for its beautiful gardens, which include ivy-covered facades, while Pine Ridge is highly regarded for its peace and quiet. On other tours, passengers can dress up for a Murder Mystery themed dinner, visit Castello di Amorosa on The Castle Winery tour, or impress a date with the Romance on the Rails package. Choose from 3-hour tours of the Napa countryside with food and wine on board or 5-hour excursions that also include stops at winery tasting rooms on the Napa Valley Wine Train. Originally a railway line built in 1864 to take visitors north to the resort town of Calistoga, the Wine Train is a three-hour, 36-mile round trip from downtown Napa to St.
Located in Northern California, about 50 miles northeast of San Francisco and about 60 miles west of Sacramento, the Napa Valley is one of the world's leading wine regions. The Napa Valley Wine Train is a real train that takes you on a tour of up to three different wineries in the Napa Valley. Just an hour from one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States, the Napa Valley Wine Train in California distills the essence of the wine country in a single day of wine, food and country rides on a vintage train. Dining experiences are different from winery tours in that you don't really stop at any winery.
Austin and I did the Legacy Tour, which lasted a total of six hours and took us to three different wineries. Choose between The Legacy Tour, The Estate Tour, The Castle Winery Tour and The Ambassador Winery Tour.
