The Napa Valley Wine Train is a nice day outing on an old train converted to rolling restaurant. It trundles slowly up the valley along Highway 29, from Napa to St. Helena and back, passing winery after winery on the way, while you sit back and enjoy a gourmet lunch or dinner, and spend time enjoying the wine tasting bar if you so choose. Passengers can stop and take a winery tour along the way as well, returning to the train for the return to the station.

It’s a pleasant day’s outing. We had a guest from out of town over the weekend and decided to enjoy a nice day’s luncheon this way. Well worth it: good wine, good food, great scenery, and good friends to enjoy the time.
