Central Coast Railroad Festival Wine Rail Excursions are offered the second Sunday of every month. Extra Excursions are added when needed and are available for private booking. The trips include a ride on Amtrak's Coast Starlight up or down the Cuesta Grade between Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo. Complimentary wine tasting, light lunch snacks, rail history and a private Ride-On transportation bus trip in the opposite direction from the rail trip are included. The trips generally stop at one or two rail-related wineries. Tickets for most trips are $59 for adults and $39 for children 15 and under. Excursions are limited to 24 friendly guests and generally sell out in advance.
