Wines in the Pines
Join us on our adult only “Wines in the Pines” excursion train where we will journey through the Piney Woods of East Texas while sampling the fine wines of Red 55 Winery, located in Lindale, TX. Red 55 Winery is the signature winery of the Texas State Railroad.
As we begin our 4 hour round-trip journey from the Palestine, TX Railroad Depot, you will sample the award winning vintage of Red 55 and savor select appetizers specifically paired to compliment each wine. We will make our way to the Rusk, TX Railroad Depot, guided by the moonlight, where we will stop and have dinner under the stars.
The return excursion, featuring a final vintage and dessert, allows ample time for all wine lovers to savor a full serving of their favorite blend, comparing notes and sharing stories with friends and loved ones.
This special event is offered in either First Class, the Upper Dome Car, Presidential or even the privately-chartered Caboose.
All wines sampled as well as other alcoholic and non-alcoholic options will be available for purchase. Each ticket holder will also receive a Texas State Railroad wine glass as a memento from your evening with us! This is a popular event so book early!
