Grgich Winery Tour

Travel through Napa Valley enjoying a gourmet lunch aboard a refurbished 1915-1917 Pullman Car before a private tour and tasting at Grgich Hills Estate. Grgich Hills Estate is a family owned and operated winery dedicated to the art of winemaking and committed to natural winegrowing and sustainability, with 100% estate grown certified organic and Biodynamic® vineyards. Founder and Winemaker Miljenko "Mike" Grgich, inducted into the Vintner Hall of Fame in 2008, became famous after he crafted the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that won the historic 1976 Paris Tasting, besting the top white Burgundies. On any given day, you may even meet this sprightly and charming legend in person.

With the Grgich Hills Winery Tour, you'll enjoy a gourmet three course lunch in an elegant dining car as you journey northbound from downtown Napa through the Napa Valley. In Rutherford you'll leave the train at Grgich Hills Estate for a one-hour private tour and tasting led by a wine educator that includes their Rutherford Vineyard and a behind-the-scenes look at the cellar before ending with a tasting. You may even meet Mike Grgich himself! You will re-board the train for the dessert course in the Wine Train's restored 1915 Pullman Lounge Car as you head back to the Napa Station.
