Murder Mystery on the Napa Valley Wine Train
There’s little doubt that one of the best things about Napa Valley, other than the wine, is the one of a kind experiences you can only find here. One such experience is the Napa Valley Wine Train, which has been hailed as one of the most distinctive restaurants in the entire Napa Valley. The Napa Valley Wine Train is an unforgettable dining experience, reminiscent of days gone by, and when train travel was an everyday part of life. The train itself is an exquisitely restored collection of antique railcars, each with their own history, that travel through the 25-mile scenic heart of Napa Valley. While you wait, a delectable meal will be prepared in one of the three on-board kitchens that make up the moving Napa Valley Wine Train restaurant. The rotating seasonal menus and luxurious experience will do anything but disappoint.
For an added touch of fun, try the Murder Mystery Dinner Train, one of the special events offered on board the Wine Train. The vintage trains are transformed into a stylish speakeasy from the 1920s, followed by murder, mayhem, and plenty of fun. And, of course, a multi-course gourmet meal and an extensive list of Napa Valley’s best wines are part of the journey.
