Wine Train, Castello di Amorosa Offer Joint Napa Valley Tour

Combine An On-The-Move Lunch Aboard A Historic Train With A Medieval Castle Tour

Castello-di-AmorosaNAPA VALLEY, March 21, 2013 — Starting April 1st, two of Napa Valley’s most sought after travel destinations, the Napa Valley Wine Train and Castello di Amorosa, will be joining together to make one all encompassing Napa Valley Tour. Now guests can sit down to an elegant multiple course meal on board the Wine Train as they travel Up Valley. Then, after one and a half hours on board, they’ll disembark for a two-hour tour of Castello di Amorosa, an authentically-styled Tuscan castle winery.

The tour offers a three course gourmet lunch in an elegant Pullman dining car as you journey northbound through the Napa Valley. Once you are Up Valley, you will disembark the train and board a private shuttle which will be waiting to transport you to Castello di Amorosa. After your castle tour and tasting, your private shuttle will return you to the Wine Train Station.

Castello di Amorosa, which translates to the “castle of love” in Italian, is an authentically-styled, 13th century Tuscan castle winery replete with high walls and five defensive towers and over 30 acres of estate vineyards. It was built over a 15-year period by Dario Sattui, a fourth generation winemaker and owner of V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena, California.

This is a “seated with others” event, which means that–in keeping with railroad tradition–parties of two might be combined to sit together at a table of four. When seated with another couple, you and your guest will be seated on the same side of the table. Parties of four will always be seated at the same table. The Wine Train seats parties together for special events such as their Murder Mystery, Vintners Lunch, Wine Education Dinner, and Winery Tour events.

Welcome wine on board the train is included with the tour. No children under five years of age are allowed. Non drinkers will receive grape juice in the tasting bar (or water).

Prices range from $189 to $234 per person. Click here to reserve online, or call 1-800-427-4124.

Winery tours require moderate stair climbing and standing for extended periods. The Wine Train encourages guests who may have difficulty performing these two activities to consider the regular lunch packages available aboard the train.
