Event in Napa, 10-17 & 10-18?  (9 Answers)

I thought I would try the forum to see if maybe someone could figure this out, because I've not been able to find it.
My wife has a business meeting in Santa Rosa on the week of 10-12. We were going to drive up there and, once her meeting is finished on Friday, spend at least another night in the area. However, that weekend, the hotels get ridiculous, and I'm trying to figure out what's going on there.
It seems to get worse as you move toward Napa, so I'm thinking that Napa is where the event is. Hotels in Fairfield are extremely high, while those in Concord are normal, and I may end up staying in Concord before flying out on another trip.
Can anyone find this major event, just to satisfy my own curiosity?

A beautiful place to picnic in Napa Valley?  (9 Answers)

I am trying to put together a not too expensive stay in Napa Valley for my husband and I.

I looked at this tour: - $99 for 6 hours and 4-5 wineries. Sounds ok. But the tasting fees are not incl. So I guess, i'll have to double the price then?

I think then maybe we will just go to one ore two wineries by our selves (we have a rentalcar). I just haven't figured out which ones we should go to yet. Maybe take the signature tour and tasting at Robert Mondavi Winery.

Anyway, the hole idea about going to Napa, was that I kinda had this picture in my head, of me and my husband having a romantic picnic on a beautiful spot overlooking lush vineyards.

Does anyone have a suggestion for such a spot?

First time to Napa  (13 Answers)

Hello,

Similar to Lemonpie's post last month, I'm looking for tips on where to stay in Napa. My boyfriend and I are in our late 20's and are making our first trip out to the area. We prefer to stay in an active area with things to do that are within walking/biking distance, but also plan to use a rental car to get to worthwhile destinations that we cannot walk to. We're looking for a vacation rental with outdoor space and a kitchen; we love to cook and I'm really looking forward to checking out some of the farmers markets and gourmet shops I've read about. We also like to wine-and-dine out, and hope to stay someplace where we won't have to rely on a car to do so. After reading books and checking out websites for weeks, I could really use some advice! We will be spending 4 days in Napa and 3 in Sonoma.

Thanks for any input!

1st Time to Napa want a hotel in the "Heart of Napa"  (21 Answers)

Hello VT

Our first time to Napa will be this summer...we want a hotel/resort in the "heart of Napa" near wineries...I have researched and cannot seem to find one that has a central location. Perhaps hotels in the "heart of Napa" don't exist and they are scattered or I am not looking in the right place. Help!

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Price does not matter.

Thanks everyone! :)

Accomodation in CA Napa Valley  (6 Answers)

We've decided to add on two days in the Napa Valley to a long, CA trip. I've been there before, but it was quite awhile ago. Calistoga looks like a good destination, but we are open to any suggestions. I'd like a nice inn or B&B - maybe about200 or so a night. Anyone have a favorite spot? We'll have a car.

Young couple needs advice in Napa/Sonoma for 5 days in August  (5 Answers)

I am in the midst of planning a 2 week vacation in CA for my boyfriend and I in August. Our first stop is for five days in San Fran (See post— and then we head to the Napa/Sonoma region for another five days/four nights. We have booked four nights at Churchill Manor but I am considering shorting that to two so that we can have two days in Sonoma—is this a good idea? Is Sonoma worth a stop over, or should we remain based in Napa and simply drive over for a day's visit in Sonoma?

We plan to visit Robert Mondavi winery and possibly La Crema—other suggestions are welcome. We would also like to do the Napa Valley Wine Train. Other than that, we have no official plans in the area and would love some advice. Maybe a spa, some shopping, and just general relaxation. The two of us are also foodies and hope to eat at some great restaurants in the area. I know that there are some "celebrity chef" restaurants in the area and think that might be cool to try one night. We also love to take pictures, so if you recommend any picturesque locations, we would love that. We wouldn't mind going on a light hike in the area if there are good places to do so. Finally, for the drive to and from Napa/Sonoma and San Fran, we would like to know of any places worth a stop.

Thank you in advance to those who post suggestions—I've supported California wine country in the comfort of my South Louisiana home for some time now and am excited for my first trip to the area!
