Gilded Age Luxury on the Napa Valley Wine Train

October 19,2022

Founded by legendary engineer and industrialist George Pullman in 1862, the Pullman Company became the leading producer of railroad cars (particularly the sleeper car, which Pullman himself invented), ushering in an era of luxury railroad travel that would reach its zenith in the early 20th century. Aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train, you’ll get to experience this bygone era of classic rail travel with a 36-mile tour that begins and ends just 15 minutes from our hotel. Sink into a plush armchair in the mahogany-paneled lounge car as you sip gourmet coffee or tea and gaze out at the exquisite California countryside. Savor a gourmet meal in the dining car adorned with burnished brass accents and engraved glass partitions, or sup in the 2-story Vista Rail Dome Car whose expansive curved windows give the impression of an open-air jaunt through the valley. Along the way, you’ll also stop at some of Napa’s most acclaimed wineries, where you’ll have the chance to sample vintages you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.
