The Napa Valley Wine Train is branching into Tequila

The Napa Valley Wine Train is celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a special Tequila Train takeover which will see the spirit paired with a four-course meal during a three-hour train ride.

While wine is usually the star of the show, The Napa Valley Wine Train is passing the baton to Tequila for one night only, allowing Tequila producer Casa Dragones, based in Jalisco, to host an evening of Mexican-themed festivities.

The Tequila Train ride, priced at US$295 per person, will begin with check-in at 5:15pm, followed by live music and a welcome cocktail, courtesy of Tequila producer Casa Dragones, accompanied by corn tortillas, guacamole and salsas in the open air car.

Moving into the dining car, guest will then be treated to prawn ceviche with tortillas and a Tequila splash as they hear about the intricacies of Tequila and food pairing.

Next up is tortilla soup with black beans, coriander crema and fresh lime, followed by a spice-rubbed flat iron Steak and orange mojo spiked Chicken with Mayan rice, queso fresco, and chimichurri.

Guests will end the gourmet experience with tres leches, a classic Mexican dessert cake soaked in three types of milk, paired with Casa Dragones Joven 100% Pure Agave Azul.
