Taking a Wine Train trip in Napa is one of the most favorite events for many travelers in Northern California. But just like not many Tokyoite go to the observatory of the Tokyo Tower several times or very few Japanese poeple climb up to the top of Mt. Fuji repeatedly, it is not really common either for Northern Californian to take wine train trips several time in their lives...I guess. However, as a matter of fact, it was my third time to take the tourist train with gorgeous dishes.
The first time was with my farther... I believe it was in the summer 2000. We enjoyed champagne branch ride. The meal was great and my Dad really enjoyed and loved the tour.
The second time was with my female friend who was traveling together in the Bay Area to attend my Berkeley friend's wedding. At that time, we enjoyed Spas and grape seed oil massage at a hotel and then head toward the dinner. That was...just great and we both loved the treatment.
So, this time, me and my mother tried lunch ride. As I'm driving, I was not able to drink wine during the ride, though I could enjoyed some 'tasting' before boarding.
As Mother and I ordered different plates, we could enjoy both versions. It was surely expensive, but worth trying to entertain special people, such as PARENTS! My mother, needless to say, really loved the experience in Napa.
Yes, Mama, I'm glad you to say that! Why don't we come back here with Dad sometime again?
