Enter the 2015 Vintage Maymont Raffle for a chance to escape to an Old World sanctuary in breathtaking Napa Valley at the idyllic Meritage Resort and Spa.

During your stay, enjoy a train ride and winery tour of the celebrated Grgich Hills Estate.

Savor a gourmet three-course lunch in an elegant dining car en route to the Grgich Hills Estate before your one-hour private tour and tasting. The dessert course awaits you back aboard the train in a restored 1915 Pullman Lounge Car.
