It takes a seasoned palate to be able to tell the difference between a $50 bottle of wine to a $5, and the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad has the perfect ride to help educate you on their Wine Tasting Train! This ride will be informational and fun as several Regional vintners provide tastings of their wines and share their knowledge on wine & food pairings. Everyone will learn how to make a charms for their wine glasses (and get to take them home), and will receive a souvenir Railroad wine glass and journal! Make sure you record your favorite wines in your wine journal!
