Napa Valley – Best time to go

Best time to visit Napa Valley

Napa Valley weather is mild and wineries are open year round, so you can choose whether to visit at its busiest during harvest or on a private, romantic tour during quieter times.

We love harvest time in Napa Valley for the kaleidoscope of colours - from the grapevines to the bird, elm, and amber trees - it is truly astounding from September to November, and the blissful sunny days stay warm and dry. There are also many harvest-related events to enjoy which is why this is our favourite time to visit.

Best times to visit

Spring Season

Spring in Napa Valley offers the rich hues of wild flowers, blossoms, and grapevines. The mornings and evenings are crisp while the days are pleasant and warm. The rain disappears by April so your days will be filled with sun and blue skies. 

Summer Season

Enjoy blue, cloudless skies and warm days as you explore the tapestry of green that summer in Napa Valley has to offer. The air is dry and rarely humid, with comfortably cool evenings. 

Autumn Season

A Napa Valley autumn is practically perfect in every way. The days are still well into the mid-20s Celsius and the sky blue and sunny as the vineyard tapestry of colours turns to vibrant golds and greens. 

Winter Season

Winter is Napa Valley’s rainy period, with chilly, cloudy days followed by crisp and clear blue skies. Temperatures rarely dip below freezing and this is the perfect time to sample a new wine in front of a roaring fire.
