The Napa Valley Wine Train, an engaging and memorable experience that echoes the glory days of train travel, announces its second annual installation of the Tequila Train and continued partnership with Tequila Casa Dragones, kicking off on Cinco de Mayo. In addition, the Tequila Train will run for one more special event to celebrate National Tequila Day on Wednesday, July 24. The collaboration with Casa Dragones continues to solidify the tequila producer as a go-to of the culinary industry aboard wine country’s most iconic train.
Slated to begin with the celebration of Cinco de Mayo, the Tequila Train will be re-launching for its second consecutive year on Sunday, May 5 in partnership with Casa Dragones, a luxury, independent small batch producer with a passion for creating exceptional sipping tequilas. The festive, two-hour train journey will begin with a welcome Casa Dragones signature cocktail upon embarking, followed by an array of traditional Mexican appetizers by the wine train’s Executive Chef Donald Young, including Orange Mojo Spike Red Snapper Fish Tacos and Tres Leches.
While onboard, guests will have the opportunity to learn about the captivating history and intricate craft behind the world’s number one sipping tequila, as told by the Casa Dragones team itself, and will receive the opportunity to opt-in for a special pour of Casa Dragones’ highest end Joven Tequila for $30 per person. To conclude the journey, guests are invited to enjoy a celebratory Casa Dragones Blanco shot, all to the beat of lively Latin tunes.
Tequila Casa Dragones is a small-batch, independent tequila producer known for their Joven and Blanco tequilas that reflect the care and precision that go into their production. Since its United States debut in 2009, Casa Dragones Joven has earned praise from tequila aficionados, top sommeliers and renowned chefs for its distinctive taste, aroma and body. Casa Dragones Joven is a master blend of extra-anejo and blanco tequilas for a super smooth taste meant to be sipped. In 2014, the producer unveiled a second style, Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco, a silver, ultra-premium tequila that maintains the nuanced elegance and subtleties that have become synonymous with the name Casa Dragones.
