Our team has put together the best times to visit Napa Valley for every kind of vacation getaway.

Experience the Perfect Summer Getaway

Everyone loves to experience the rich culture and friendly people of Napa Valley in the summer. With countless summer events that occur every year in Napa, there will always be something truly memorable on your itinerary. Napa Valley hosts amazing musical events, wine tastings, parades, and more; in particular, the 4th of July celebration is a seasonal highlight with the Napa County Fair & Fireworks in Calistoga. Thanks to children being out of school, there are plenty of activities for families to enjoy together in the summer.

Experience Winemaking & Harvest Season

If you want to witness the process behind wine production, we recommend visiting Napa from late August to October. This is when, among other things, winemakers are up before sunrise to ensure grapes are picked at their prime sugar levels—which is truly magical. It is by far the busiest time of the year in wine country because the harvest is such an unforgettable experience that encompasses the art, science, and complexity of producing ultra-premium wines. Wine consumers from all over the world come together in Napa Valley to share their love and appreciation for the craft of winemaking. If you want to experience harvest season firsthand, we recommend you plan your trip far in advance due to the high volume of people visiting at this time.

Experience Napa Valley During Fall

Autumn is one of the most beautiful times of the year to visit. During fall, the valley is covered with vibrant reds, orange, and golden yellows. You can also smell the fermented grapes that seep out of tanks. If you want to experience Napa in the fall, we recommend that you visit between late September and mid-November. Not only is fall filled with beautiful scenery, but the season is marked with multiple festivals and celebrations.

Experience Napa Valley All to Yourself

After the holidays, Napa quiets down. In the off-season, you can enjoy Napa with fewer crowds and easier availability for tours and spa sessions. If you want to avoid crowds of tourists and get a luxury hotel experience at a lower cost, we recommend visiting Napa Valley between January and May. If you visit near the start of May, expect the number of visitors to pick up; however, this is the perfect time to hike through the hills!
