The most exclusive dining experience aboard the famous Napa
Valley Wine Train is the Vista Dome car. The domed rail car dates back to
1952, and it hosts the most intimate experience offered by the train. The private
lunch begins with a complimentary glass of California sparkling wine, followed
by a four-course lunch. What makes the Vista Dome Car so special is its elevated
design, making it perfect for observation of the Napa Valley vineyards rolling
by. The Pullman car has been refurbished to extremely high standards, using
brass accents and Honduran mahogany paneling. All of the meals are prepared
to order on the first floor of this car, making use of local, sustainable ingredients.
The Napa Wine train offers its most exclusive lunch for about $125 per person. The Vista Dome car is one of the most desired reservations on the train, and it is wise to book as far in advance as possible. The domed car can hold up to 56 guests, and it is available for private functions. The Vista Dome is also home to special events, such as a Vintners Lunch on Fridays. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the rest of the train during a break between courses. The intimate setting of this car ensures that no detail of the vineyards and landscape are missed. Providing a whole different perspective to the Napa Wine Train, this car is the ultimate way to journey by rail through the valley.
