Niles Canyon Railway

Charlie Day-Creative Comons

When you feel the floor begin to wobble under your feet at a wine tasting, that's usually a sign that you've had enough. On the Niles Canyon Railway's wine tasting trains, however, it means you've just left the station. The tracks of the Niles Canyon Railway were first laid down in 1866 as part of the first transcontinental railroad. Nowadays, these tracks play host to a moving museum of lovingly restored trains from the golden era of passenger travel. On select weekends from June through October, the Niles Canyon Railway runs a wine train through a river canyon starting at the pre-Hollywood movie studio town of Niles. Certified wine professional Steve Ferree will guide you through a tasting of Livermore wines paired with hors d'oeuvres during the two-hour ride, which is $40 per person.
