[FAQ Video transcript: “The differences between the Chauffeured Winery Tour and the Winery Train Tour are primarily the mode of transportation and where we go. On the Chauffeured Winery Tour, we are going to be taking you to wineries with vineyards. On the Winery Train Tour, we’ll be taking you to urban wineries.
