This Christmas Wine Train Will Get You In The Holiday Spirit

Christmas is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate the holiday then to climb on board a wine train!Every year in Napa Valley, California there’s an annual Santa Train. Now this isn’t your kid’s St. Nick choo-choo, this one is for adults 21 years and over. Granted, children are welcome, but the real fun is for the grown-ups.

Travel + Leisure notes this “scenic journey combines wine and Christmas festivities from November 18 through December 29.”  Those who want to climb on board can expect to go through downtown Napa and will end up in Santa’s workshop in the North Pole.
