Aboard the train, riders lounge on Merlot-colored velvet seats and take in the Andean peaks rolling by as aproned stewards serve glasses of fine Chilean wine. This sleek set of restored rail carriages with polished brass fittings, elegant curtains, and white cloth-laid tables gently rattles through a valley populated by row upon row of vines puncuated with the odd farmyard and terra-cotta-topped house. This is undoubtedly the best way to arrive in the laid-back town of Santa Cruz.
