Any time of the year is a great time to come to Napa Valley. But fall is extra special because all the year’s activity culminates in the celebration of the annual harvest.
In addition to the excitement of the harvest parties, grape stomping, music, and wine tastings, the weather is ideal, and the businesses and communities are welcoming visitors with open arms.
Begin your fall adventure in style with a hot air balloon California-style trip above the vineyards and over 400 wineries across the Valley.
