Napa Valley Tours
A trip to San Francisco wouldn’t be complete without a stop in the world-renowned wine region of Northern California. Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley produce some of the best wines in the world including varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and more. Located just north of San Francisco (just a short trip across the Golden Gate Bridge), the region offers hundreds of amazing wineries that you can visit to do tastings, see the vineyards and learn about the winemaking process. Napa Valley alone has over 400 wineries to choose from.
While there are lots of activities to do in Napa Valley, winery tours are definitely the most popular thing to do. There are many different options for tours, however a Napa Valley Bus Tour is usually the best option. Simply hop on a luxury bus and head to Napa Valley for stops at 3 to 5 different wineries. Some bus tours also include things like lunch, olive oil tastings and scenic drives.
When planning your trip to Napa Valley it is important to consider when you are visiting. The time of year can affect your options since Napa, experiences all four seasons throughout the year with temperatures ranging between 30-90 degrees.
- Spring (March – May) offers warm days perfect for touring vineyards. Since it is before the summer rush, you won’t see quite as many crowds, but make sure to look out for the Bottlerock Music Festival dates. Typically, the last weekend in May, it is one of the busiest weekends in Napa, so you will want to avoid it, if possible.
- Summer (June – August) bring temperatures slightly higher but still comfortable enough for outdoor adventures like biking along American Canyon Road or going rafting down the Russian River which runs through Napa county! August is also the beginning of Harvest Season, so you can find some fun events at some of the wineries to celebrate “The Crush.”
- Fall (September – November) brings cooler temperatures ideal for epic nature hikes at Lake Berryessa followed by cozy evenings spent fireside at nearby wineries sampling your new favorite pinot noir!
- Winter (December – February) brings cold weather perfect for air ballooning across Napa Valley’s rolling hills followed by a warm cup cocoa at Calistoga Hot Springs & Spa! This is also the rainy season, so make sure to check the weather before booking a trip.
