Why You Should Visit Napa Valley in the Winter

Image of a Napa Valley in winterWhen most people think of visiting Napa Valley, they try to plan their trip for the summer or spring—the peak tourist season. But did you know that winter is actually a great time to visit too? Considered the “low season” due to low tourism numbers, January through March offer much to see and experience in our beautiful valley.

Even though winter tends to be cool and rainy, keep in mind that this is California’s version of cool weather, not Minnesota’s. Daytime highs tend to range in the mid-50s, and rain falls approximately 8 days out of the month. So compared to what much of the country experiences during winter, Napa’s weather is still very comfortable.

Things to Do in Winter in Napa Valley

While the grapes have already been harvested and the vineyards look bare, the wineries are still open. This time of year the tasting rooms are seldom crowded, and their staffs are able to spend ample time with each visitor. If you like being showered with attention and treated like royalty, this is the perfect season to go.

And Napa Valley sets aside one week each winter for Napa Valley Restaurant Week. This winter it takes place the week of January 20th, 2019. It’s the perfect time for guests to experience the area’s legendary food and wine culture. During the week, many restaurants offer multi-course prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner. You can find a list of participating restaurants here.

There are also plenty of events and festivals to take part in during winter. Some of the more popular annual winter attractions include visiting the Calistoga Holiday Village, touring the Napa Lighted Art Festival, exploring the Napa Valley Truffle Festival, and watching the Napa Valley Marathon.

Because hotel prices are reduced in winter, you can stay an extra day or two without breaking the bank and take some extra time for sightseeing. As you drive along the Napa Valley countryside, you’re sure to see many wild mustard plants blooming in the vineyards as early as February, creating a vibrant carpet of bright yellow flowers. Locals call it “mustard season.”

If you’ve been dreaming of a Napa Valley getaway, winter is the perfect time to go. You can find many great real estate tips and Napa Valley information on our Facebook page. If you’re thinking about buying or selling your home, we can help! Contact us today!
