Heading back from Cakebread, I snapped some pics out the car window. At the base of this image, you can see the tracks from the Napa Valley Wine Train. Before our trip, many people asked if we were going to ride it. We had no plans to, and we’re so glad we didn’t. You never actually stop at wineries. You just ride the train, eat and drink (at least, that’s my understanding). It was far more interesting and pleasurable for us (especially as two adults on a romantical -type holiday, sans kid) to visit wineries to learn about and taste wines we wouldn’t be able to experience the say way anywhere else, and possibly not in any other location.
