10 Reasons to Visit the Napa Valley Midweek

As harvest approaches, the inevitable happens: More and more visitors want to come to the Napa Valley to sip our wines, taste our cuisine, admire our views, and enjoy the wine-country lifestyle.

If you can get the time off work or finagle another escape plan, now’s the time to come to the valley Sunday through Thursday. Hotels from Napa to Calistoga are offering special packages and incentives, besides the fact that you’ll have more room to experience the Napa Valley all to yourselves. Be sure to contact the hotel directly for details and possible black-out dates.
