1. The Napa Valley is the home to more than 300 wineries, plus
over 250 wineries in Sonoma, so there are a lot of wineries. You will only be able to visit 4 to 6
wineries per day with a 6 to 8 hour wine tour. We encourage our guests to visit a large winery
or two, experience a cave tour and visit a boutique, off-the-beaten
path, small winery.
2. The Wine Country is open to visitors all year round, and
Saturday is the most crowded wine tasting day of the week. The
peak time for wine tasting is between May and October. So, if you visit the Napa Valley in the peak season, especially on
Saturday, expect it to be crowded.
3. Off season months are between November and April, which is a
great time to do wine tasting. Also, during the week in high
season is a
good way to miss some of the large crowds.
Sonoma, with over 250 wineries, is often less crowded than Napa,
which have great wineries as well. Some of the best wines are grown
and bottled in the Sonoma Valley.
5. If you are traveling during the peak season, please don't wait
until the last minute or you might be disappointed. Limousines,
hotels, restaurants, etc might be all booked and prices tend to
get higher. Try to plan a month a head of time. In the slow
season, you could possibly book a couple of weeks ahead. But,
the earlier the better!
are a lot of choices, from places to stay, to dine at, wineries to
visit, to activities so if you feel overwhelmed we are here to help you answer questions you may have
