What to expect

Travel through the lush Napa Valley countryside, and be transported back to the romance and luxury of the golden age of train travel of the early 1900s. Gourmet meals aboard the Gourmet Express are crafted by Executive Chef Donald Young and his passionate culinary team in one of three, on-board kitchens. Guests are encouraged to explore the train and visit the kitchen cars to see our chefs in action.

Choose between an exquisite lunch or dinner option on the Gourmet Express. In the spring and summer, the long and warm California twilight means that when you take your Wine Train dinner journey, Napa Valley’s vineyards will be bathed in the beautiful, golden hour sunlight for most of the way. During fall and winter, when the train departs after sunset, experience the romance and adventure of an antique train traveling through the dark, starlit Napa Valley night.
