No visit to the Napa Valley would be complete without a ride on the iconic Napa Valley Wine Train.
Should you be visiting America's preeminent wine region, beginning, on Thursday, August 24th Rock the Rails embarks on a new music series.
Thursday's big launch features Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and takes place at V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena. Proceeds benefit the Rail Arts District (RAD) of Napa Valley.
Future Rock the Rail events already scheduled includes Sheila E on Thursday, September 21st at Grgich Hills Estate, and David Pack’s Legends Live on Thursday, October 5th at Charles Krug Winery.
The Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Valley Wine Train and members of the local arts community partnered to create the first art district in the Napa Valley, designated as the Rail Arts District (RAD) Napa.
Initial funding of $100,000 has been committed by the Vine Trail and Wine Train; together they are actively working towards several 'Early Win' projects.
The evening will include round trip transportation to the concert on one of their restored rail cars, a multi-course meal paired with Napa Valley wines, and the concert performance by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy with special guests.
The next time you pass a piece of public art, take a moment to stop and enjoy it, and think about how it's making your community a better place to live.
