Best time to visit

Actually there is not a bad time to visit Napa Valley. September and October are the busiest and warmest months, offering the chance to experience the annual grape harvest in action. But remember this is peak tourist season so expect crowds and high prices for just about everything. If you catch the tail end of the harvest season, you’ll enjoy the area’s beautiful autumn weather, complete with changing leaves.

March through May is another prime time to visit. During the spring, everything is green in Napa and the mild weather makes it a perfect time to embark on a hike through the hills to get up close and personal with nature. Spend an afternoon traversing the trails in Skyline Park and enjoy the park’s native plant garden.
