Here’s an interesting idea for an outing: take BART to the Napa Valley Wine Train. Earlier this year the Wine Train and BART started shuttle service between the BART North Concord/Martinez station and the Napa Valley Wine Train. $30 round trip, and you don’t have to worry about a designated driver. Here’s where you go for more information: Wine Train – BART connection.
Your outing does not have to be just the Wine Train. From the train station, it’s a 5-10 minute walk to the Oxbow Public Market, where more food and wine treats await. Three Twins Ice Cream might be a good way to finish off the day.
Also, there are a number of wine tasting rooms in Downtown Napa within walking distance of the Wine Train and the Oxbow Market.
No excuses now! It’s easier than ever to get to Napa for wine tasting.
