Wineries in Napa Valley
How many in a day?
How many wineries to visit in a day depends on the wineries you choose and the pace you are comfortable with. For a regular tasting at a popular winery, allow about ½ to one hour, around 30 minutes more for reservations for a longer tour and tasting. Most wineries are open from around 9-10 AM until 4:30 or 5 PM. Allowing time for travel between wineries, a stop or two to appreciate the scenery and perhaps a nice lunch a fairly hectic day would be around 6-8 winery visits. A more relaxing day would be perhaps 4-6.
Where to visit?
One of the most frequently asked questions from guests is something along the lines of “what are the must see wineries”? With over 250 wineries in the valley it’s actually a tougher question to answer than you might think. In responding, we first try to find out what people are looking for so we can base our advice on their preferences. The following recommendations are a few personal favorites grouped around some themes that guests often find useful in putting together a list of wineries to visit. If there is a category you really like then choose several from there, alternatively choose a few from each to get a flavor of the valley’s diverse wineries. Also, please remember that even living here, we don’t know every winery and that part of the fun of the valley is the element of discovery. If you see something on your travels, or read something about it on a web site or hear something from a friend - try it out, that winery may just become the one you love that becomes your personal favorite to share with a friend – and so the cycle turns…..
