This Wine-Themed Train In Washington Will Give You The Ride Of A Lifetime
It’s no secret that we love our wine here in Washington, and we love hearing about new and exciting ways to enjoy our wine (if you doubt this, Google “YogaMosa”). And on a few select days each year, you can combine two of Washingtonians’ greatest joys, wine tasting and train travel. It’s called the Washington Wine Express, and it’s amazing.
The first Washington Wine Express date has passed, but you still have a few chances left this year to experience it.
Upcoming dates are August 6, September 9 and September 10.
You'll depart from the Elbe Depot and enjoy a relaxing steam train ride through the forests and foothills south of Mount Rainier, sipping on wine tastes the entire way.
Your fare includes all wine tastings throughout the excursion, one glass of wine of your choice served in a commemorative wine glass, live entertainment and a meal at the Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum, and a delicious dessert on the train ride back.
When the train stops at the MRRR Logging Museum, you’ll have two hours to sample wine many prominent Washington wineries, talk to the vintners and growers, and indulge in a catered meal.
Allow about 3.5 hours for your wine-themed train adventure. Departures are at 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM, returning at 2 PM and 6 PM, respectively.
Tickets for the Washington Wine Express are $64 for a Standard Adult, $79 for First Class.
The event is exclusively for passengers 21 and over.
This is a wonderful way to see some of the most beautiful parts of Washington while learning more about our local wine.
It's a win-win(e), really.
