“We’re delighted that our Holiday Lights Tours have become part of the Christmas tradition here in the Valley, and we’re particularly pleased that the proceeds from these events will be donated to the Foster Children of Napa Valley, such a deserving charity,” said Mark Leonardi, The Napa Valley Wine Trolley General Manager.

Leonardi urged passengers on the trolley tours to consider having dinner at one of the fine restaurants surrounding the Oxbow Public Market or The Restaurant at CIA Copia after the tour.

“It is always a delightful moment to be able to dine on a riverfront patio overlooking the Napa River, especially during the holiday season when so many homes and hotels are so beautifully decorated,” he said.

He also reminded trolley riders to be mindful of chilly evening temperatures in Napa in December, recommending that they wear warm clothing for their tours.
