Pretty much anyone of drinking age who enjoys an adult beverage here or there can attest to the fact that wine tasting is a helluva good time! Good friends, plus great wine, plus scenic views equals an awesome day by any measure. Here’s one way to take your wine tasting experience to a new level: do it on a train! Yup, that’s right, the Sacramento River Train is proud to present their “Old Vine Express” on Saturday, Nov 1, 2014. Enjoy a leisurely three-hour scenic train ride through some of the best vistas that Yolo County has to offer with 14 local wineries aboard to fill up your glasses! A standard ticket, just $35, gets you six tastes. Upgrade to the VIP ticket ($50) to double your tastings and you’ll also be allowed to board the train early and receive a souvenir wine glass. The wineries involved are all from Yolo County (Berryessa Gap, Carvalho Family Wines, Miner’s Leap Winery, Wilson Vineyards, just to name a few), so you’ll be cruising through the region that the wines you are tasting were produced! Talk about “keeping it local!” The Old Vine Express boards in West Sacramento at 400 N. Harbor Boulevard. General admission boarding begins at 1:45 p.m., 15 minutes prior to departure. VIP ticket holders may board at 1:15 p.m. Visit to get your tickets before they sell out!
