By From page A4 | April 21, 2014

The week aheadSUISUN CITY — Riders on the Vintage Comet will get to sip local wine on a train trip through the Montezuma Hills.

The Western Railway Museum, in partnership with the Suisun Valley Wine Cooperative, has been rolling out its historic train equipment for wine-tasting tours during the month of April while the wildflowers are in bloom. Passengers will have the opportunity to sample local wines during the hourlong trips.

Passengers will get to ride in a 1914 Salt Lake and Utah Railway observation parlor car or the Sacramento Northern No. 1005 on original Sacramento Northern tracks. The Vintage Comet departs at 4 p.m. Saturday.

There is a fee, which includes a souvenir wine glass. A portion of the ticket price benefits the Solano Midnight Sun Foundation, which provides financial assistance to women with breast cancer who need help paying for basic living expenses during their treatments.

To make a reservation, visit the Brown Paper Tickets website at http://bpt.me/509705 or call 800-838-3006.
