Why Napa Valley is the Perfect Romantic Destination
Where there is winemaking, there is love. So, it should come as no surprise that Napa Valley is one of the most romantic places in the world and the perfect destination for wine lovers.
With world-class vineyards and wine tastings, scenic views, standout restaurants, and more, there are many ways to experience Napa Valley this Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Is February a good time to go to Napa Valley?
A mild, temperate climate makes Northern California and Napa Valley wineries a coveted destination year-round. Expect temperatures in the mid-50s, clear sunny days intermixed with occasional rain and clouds. Every season is an opportunity to embrace the region's unique micro-climates and idyllic landscape. We recommend packing light layers and warm attire during this time of year.
The California wintertime is considered low-season, which could make a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day extra special. We aim to provide the highest level of hospitality and memorable guest experiences any time of year, but in general, fewer crowds can make way for more personal visits.
