Whether you are a regular wine country weekender or a first time visitor, Napa Valley always has something new and interesting to offer. While each season brings its own exciting experience, the Napa Valley Wine Train remains a classic among area attractions. This unique tour onboard a luxuriously restyled Vintage Pullman railcar is one of the most memorable ways to experience the valley’s scenery and wineries.
You have several options within the 3-hour Day Trippers or the 6-hour Quattro Vino Tours. In fact, Napa Valley Wine Train has recently announced ‘The Famiglia Tour’ as the latest addition to their repertoire of the Quattro Vino Tours. The focus of this tour is on family-run wineries. Hear fascinating stories of vintner families who have lovingly passed on their passion for winemaking across generations. Get a taste of their deep-rooted traditions and connections, as well as their smooth Cabernets and fruity Sauvignon-Blancs. Cover plenty of ground in the 36-mile, round-trip journey, in which you will visit three of the finest family-run wineries in the valley. The tour also includes a multi-course gourmet meal and an exclusive tasting of the wine train’s private label sparkling wine.
While regular prices start at $322 per person, you can take advantage of their introductory offer. Book and ride the Famiglia Tour for an exclusive rate of $299 per person, from Monday to Thursday, through all of July 2018. Just use the promotional code FAMAPR when you reserve online or call 800-427-4124 to book.
