Sparkling wine is the best kind of welcome. And a light gourmet breakfast trio of ciabatta and smoked salmon, berry parfait, and steel cut oatmeal brûlée gets your palate ready for the adventure ahead. Your traveling companions, an intimate group of 30, are ready to share in the discovery, the best of which might be the unexpected connections you make on your way.
First stop, the revered Domaine Chandon, a pioneer of California sparkling wine, founded in 1973 by Champagne house Moët & Chandon. The investment turned more than a few heads, and the exquisite architecture, lush landscape, and one of the most beautiful locations in Napa Valley are sure to turn yours. Go behind the scenes in the world of sparkling wines and the grapes used to make them.
The setting on the Napa Valley Wine Train is luxurious and elegant. And your second course is equally as decadent: heirloom tomato gazpacho and organic Sonoma spring greens.
A 150-year- old historic vineyard. An inspiring collection of more than 35 works by internationally acclaimed artists. And world-class, award-winning wines. The striking 35-foot- tall rabbit sculpture, Bunny Foo Foo, hints that you’ve arrived somewhere special. Everything else at Hall confirms it.
A stately meal is waiting for you back on board, with your choice of citrus braised pork belly or miso glazed fillet of salmon. Lavish ambience is always served.
Last stop, Inglenook. A stately chateau and vineyard born from the passions of a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur, and entrepreneur, restored to its heritage by director Francis Ford Coppola and his wife Eleanor. The estate has many charms. A terrace reminiscent of an Italian piazza. Intriguing infinity caves. And of course, the historic Gustave Niebaum Cabernet Sauvignon selection, first planted on the property in the 1880s.
The train rolls down the track, taking you back, while you indulge in the fourth course—white wine poached seckel pear.
