When you think of a Napa Valley wine tour package, you may automatically think of luxury. Let’s face it — touring in Napa Valley can be quite expensive. But if you are resourceful enough, you can score great deals such as coupons, discounts, or wine tour packages especially if you go with a large family or a group of friends.
The first thing you have to do is to pick the wineries which offer great deals. Look at the price of their tastings. While a lot of the wineries charge $50 and up per person, you may also find wineries that offer wine tastings for $10 or $15 per person; there are even wineries that offer two tastings for one price! There are many websites such which offer helpful information or you may be able to find apps such as Winery Finder which will make the task easier. You may be able to find coupons at the Napa Valley Welcome Center or pick up promo codes at PriorityWinePass.com
Try the off-beaten-track wineries (e.g., wineries that are not usually along the main roads such as the Silverado Trail) which offer reasonably-priced tastings.
One of the more challenging things to find in Napa Valley is the lodging. However, you can find less expensive lodging in downtown Napa. Some rooms will set you back at $90 to $100 (before taxes). You can find decent rooms and rates at some lodgings such as Wine Valley Lodge, Napa Discovery Inn, and Motel 6. If you want to have nice accommodations for free, you may also refer to Couchsurfing.com, which helps you connect with locals who would offer you a free room to stay! This website is recommended especially if you are traveling alone or as a couple.
Napa Valley restaurants are famous for their world-class food, so like the wines, they will likely affect your wallet. If you want to survive in Napa on a budget yet still feel full, check out the sandwich shops or markets such as the Oxbow Public Market. It is the home of Gott’s Roadside which serves delectable burgers for under $8, while Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc Addendum offer goodies such as food truck-style fried chicken with sides for $15 per serving. You may also want to cook your own food by buying fresh produce at several markets in the region.
