The Castle Winery Tour Step back in time 100 years when you board the Train, and travel back another 500 years when you reach the Castle. Rising above the hills in the Napa Valley is Castello di Amorosa, which translates to the “castle of love” in Italian. Castello di Amorosa is an authentically-styled, 13th century Tuscan castle winery replete with high walls and five defensive towers and more than 30 acres of estate vineyards. It was built during a 15-year period by Dario Sattui, a fourth generation winemaker and owner of V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena, California.
The Valley First Winery Tour View the vineyards and rolling hills of Napa Valley’s less developed east side as you travel up the Silverado Trail before the Train even leaves in the Station. Arrive at Raymond Vineyards via motor coach and explore their Theater of Nature, facilities, and eclectic style on your guided tour, while sampling some of their wonderful wines. Transfer to the Train after your tour and enjoy the next two hours viewing the west side of the Valley and leisurely savoring a multiple course gourmet lunch in one of our dining cars as you return to Napa.
The Grgich Hills Winery Tour The Grgich Hills Winery Tour is our only tour where you are transported solely by the Napa Valley Wine Train.
