“Afternoon tea is a cherished tradition, and we are thrilled to be able to offer it with a twist of peppermint as part of our holiday programming,” said Nathan Davis, general manager, Napa Valley Wine Train. “It’s the perfect way, and a nice alternative for those who prefer a less wine-centric experience, to celebrate the season with family and friends while enjoying the beautiful Napa Valley scenery.”
