Las Vegas, NV—February 16, 2021—X Wine Railroad, which hosts curated rail excursions from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara’s Wine Country, has retained Elizabeth Borsting, president of Elizabeth Borsting Public Relations, Inc. as its general manager and public relations consultant.

Towards the late afternoon, guests are shuttled back to Santa Barbara where they will board the train back to Los Angeles.
