Napa Valley reigns as the land of grand estates, expansive tasting rooms, quaint towns, and elegant lodgings, many of which edge up to the celebrated Silverado Trail. Roughly an hour’s drive north of San Francisco and boasting more than 400 wineries, Napa Valley is a connoisseur’s paradise, inviting visitors to explore beyond the region’s signature Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Don’t miss, for instance, the rediscovered Merlot, whose plush texture and earthy cherry flavor are appealing to a new generation of red wine fans.
Long considered California’s most famous wine region, Napa Valley exploded into the global spotlight following the 1976 Judgment of Paris, when a Chateau Montelena Chardonnay from Calistoga trounced nine other Chardonnays in a blind tasting in Paris, including extremely prestigious bottles from France. At the time, France was considered the world’s forerunning wine region, but this triumph forever changed the international perception of Northern California’s wines.(inf src)
Whether you’re a wine enthusiast, train-lover, or foodie—or all three—the Napa Valley Wine Train is an unforgettable dining, tasting and travel experience that stimulates all the senses.
The Napa Valley Wine Train is one of the most distinctive Napa restaurants. This top dining establishment is housed in an antique train that runs on 25-miles of track in the heart of the Napa Valley. (src)
Insiders who have ridden the Napa Valley Wine Train recommend the Vista Dome Package. Though it’s the most expensive package, it features an unforgettable dining experience that delivers a “first-class” feeling, hearkening back to the glory days of luxury rail travel. (src)
What’s make it awesome-er? The train has three on-board kitchens. Though the thrill of the ride is a huge part of the experience, the train is primarily a rolling gourmet restaurant with a changing seasonal menu featuring fresh local ingredients prepared in the train’s three fully operational kitchens (src). Sit at shared tables for one of the three-hour Gourmet Express trains, which focus on the feast as you watch wine country glide by. (src)

“An integral part of Napa Valley history since 1881, Oakville Grocery remains a gathering place for friends to share the best in handcrafted, locally sourced food and wine and to experience what makes Napa and Sonoma Counties so special. As the longest continually operating grocery store in California, it was the general store that served the visionary pioneers who first planted grapes in the valley. We want to honor that rich past while looking forward to present the very best in casual handcrafted food – food that is representative of today’s thriving Napa and Sonoma County’s gourmet artisan food community.” – Oakville Grocery
“Oakville Grocery is a great gourmet grocery market right on the plaza in Healdsburg. Their sandwiches are really good and their menu, while not huge, is really good. They have nice, patio-style, seating, and a nice view of the plaza. Oakville has great service, and usually long lines.
An awesome fun stop with the best sandwiches! Indulge with lots of cheese samples and of course, wines!
Totally an interesting place to visit!”– google reviews
