This is a unique trip. Imagine a wine tasting trip to the Willamette Valley aboard private railcars. That's just what you'll have if you join us on this trip. We will be travelling in two private sleeping cars (the Pacific Sands and the Salisbury Beach) and have our own private lounge car as well (the Overland Trail). Wine tastings will be performed en route celebrating the different wine regions we'll be passing through on our way up to Portland Oregon - the City of Roses. We leave Los Angeles on a Wednesday morning and arrive in Portland at 3:40pm the following day. The cars will be taken off at Portland's Union Station where they'll be parked for our stay. Your sleeping car is you hotel room in Portland. On
Friday we will be shuttled into the Willamette Valley to go wine tasting in towns like Newberg, Dundee and McMinnville. Saturday will be a free day of your choosing. The Rose Festival will be in full swing while we are there. Portland offer many fine dining establishments along with numerous micro breweries and micro distilleries. The light rail and street car systems make it easy to get around town.
Sunday we re-board the train for a 2:25pm departure time towards home. Again, we will have local wine tastings onboard and some fantastic meals. We arrive back in Los Angeles on Monday at 9:00pm.
