Enjoy Your Time in Napa Valley

You don't need to travel abroad for a taste of the Mediterranean. Napa Valley, California has the rolling hills, vineyards and abundant sunshine that most people associate with Italy. Orbitz.com can streamline all your travel arrangements and help you discover Napa Valley.

Beautiful vineyards and wineries are what draw most people to Napa Valley. Most wineries are open daily for tasting. Napa Cellars, Sutter Home and Robert Mondavi are among the more popular wineries. However, you don't have to be a wine connoisseur to appreciate Napa Valley. Excellent golf resorts, such as Silverado, dot the region. If you prefer the solitude of nature, biking and hiking trails abound on the hills surrounding the valley.

Best time to take a vacation to Napa

  • Best Time to Go

    While there isn't really a bad time to visit the California wine country, Napa and Sonoma do have some congested times of the year. Summer is the big vacation time in the United States, and many people travel to California for summer vacation, raising rates and causing congestion. In winter, the weather is very wet and cooler, between 37 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and you can avoid crowds and enjoy cozy fireplaces, more tables at restaurants, and light traffic. September and October is one of the most expensive times to travel to these areas, because everyone wants to see the grape harvest and take tours of wineries in full production mode.

  • Napa Valley enjoys pleasant, some would say perfect, weather nearly all year. In late summer, temperatures can approach 100 degrees Fahrenheit, especially in the northwestern part of the valley. Winters are pleasantly mild. Most of the year's rain falls in the winter, but that's only about 24 inches. High temperatures in December and January are usually in the 60s or low 70s. In terms of weather, there's no bad time to visit Napa Valley. Great events happen all year long, but especially in summer and fall. The Music in the Vineyards Festival in August pairs some of the world's elite classical musicians with the stunning scenery of the Napa Valley wineries.
