Taste Local Wines On Board the
Old Vine Express
This farm-to-glass event rolls along old River Road offering tastings of Northern California wines. Each trip features a live band and a selection of 15 wines to choose from. After visiting your assigned seat where you will find your souvenir tasting glass, the event works much like a winery tasting room. You can walk through the train to visit any of the three tasting stations located throughout the train, each pouring different wines from around Northern California. Half way into the trip we will stop at our park along the river where guests can deboard to stretch their legs and enjoy the view. During the 2.5 hour trip, feel free to wander among the three open-air cars or return to your assigned seat in the enclosed cars to enjoy your wine.

Is the Old Vine Express kid friendly?
Young train enthusiasts will have to wait until they turn 21 to enjoy this special wine-tasting experience.
Can I bring my dog on the Old Vine Express?
We do allow up to five dogs on our Beer Train, Old Vine Express and RiverTrain Excursion. Dogs are only allowed in the open air cars. For this reason, each dog must have two humans with them as tasting stations are often located in the indoor cars.
