Napa Valley is the perfect place for honeymooners — the beautiful and dreamy landscape alone makes for an ideal romantic setting. And like many other romantic couples vacationing in the region, they won’t let their stay in the Napa go by without giving a toast to their love with a Cabernet or Chardonnay. Consider these wineries during your honeymoon in Napa Valley.
Many Napa (as well as Sonoma) hotels offer honeymoon packages; you only have to be on a smart lookout to score these great deals! Hotels such as the Westin Napa offer a five-night honeymoon package that attend to your every need to make sure you and your new spouse enjoy each other and relax. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, enjoy a day at the spa, and have dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant, as well as a wine tour.
However, if pretty and romantic panoramic views of the rolling mounds of neat and lovely vineyards matters more to you, then you should check out some hotels that offer gorgeous views as well as feature beautiful architecture. The Auberge Du Soleil, Milliken Creek Inn and Spa, The Meritage Resort and Spa, Harvest Inn, North Block Hotel are mostly nestled in the heart of the country which offer impressive views of the valley.
When you’re going to visit wineries, again the beautiful views and impressive architecture will also be much of a consideration. Actually, most of the Napa wineries offer spectacular views of the landscape, so you have to choose wineries that have something extra special for your honeymoon. Step into the medieval royalty at the Castelo di Amorosa, feel like the lord of your own chateau at Domaine Carneors, or go up on an aerial tramway at Sterling Vineyards.
Dinners for the honeymooners should be best left in an intimate setting — the kind of places that will not only fill your senses but also tug at your emotions. The Auberge du Soleil is famed for its views of the beautiful sunset, The Lakehouse in Calistoga, and the Restaurant at Meadowood offer the loveliest sights for couples who are out on a date.
Consider a hot air balloon ride for the ultimate romantic moment. If you choose this as part of your activity, choose Balloons Above the Valley (BATV), the pioneer of hot air balloon rides in Napa.
BATV provides honeymooning couples the chance to see the beauty of the Napa Valley from a dramatically different perspective. You will be in awe of the neatly arranged rows of grapevines, green rolling hills and deep valleys, and the occasional fog that envelops the hills. The sunrise that gradually greets the natural wonders in Napa will also be an amazing sight.
Although we offer sunrise hot air balloon and wine tours packages for certain numbers of guests, you can also opt for our Exclusive Flights package. In this package you can have the hot air balloon virtually to yourself, as well as a private table at the champagne brunch celebration after the flight.
A perfect honeymoon in Napa Valley should consist of a beautiful hotel with spectacular views, intimate dinner date, and a hot air balloon flight. These are the elements in your Napa Valley honeymoon getaway that will bring you and your new spouse closer than ever.
