This holiday season, the Napa Valley Wine Train celebrates with its guests by offering a dreamscape of unforgettable experiences for Napa Valley visitors. Santa Trains and the New Year’s Eve Blackjack Ball are among the offerings.
Throughout December, Santa and his friends will be aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train for the ideal family fun outing.
Ol’ Saint Nick will take photos with children during the scenic train ride to Yountville back to the station. Santa’s annual visit attracts the young and the young-at-heart, with sell-outs each year. Advance ticket purchasing is highly recommended.

The New Year’s Eve menu items include mini crab cakes and short rib toast, quail pan seared in brown butter with black truffles, lobster tail and seared day boat scallops — to name a few.
The evening continues in the Napa Valley Wine Train station for an after party with a DJ, casino games, photo booth and dancing that lead festively into the new year.
