The Warren County Winery Train
May 2nd through October 26th
Enjoy a beautiful journey along the scenic Delaware River behind New Jersey’s only operating steam locomotive. Visit to one of New Jersey’s most beautiful Wineries. The train will take you to the end of our line where you will board a bus for the short trip to the Villa Milagro Vineyards in Finesville, NJ.
There you will learn how grapes are grown and made into wine. Then you will sample their delicious wines and have an opportunity to purchase them at the source. If you would like to enjoy your wine with a picnic, bring a lunch and relax at tables in tree groves at the Ol’Susquehanna Mine and Corn Maze or at the station in Phillipsburg. You are welcome to detrain at the Mine and spend as much time as you like relaxing in the picnic grove then catch a later train.
