Napa Valley Money-Saving Tips

Wine Tasting by Limo

Don’t want to risk getting a DUI on your wine tasting tour? Sit back and let Appellation Tours chauffer you in your own limo.

Avoid Saturdays

The most crowded day of the week for wine tasting is Saturday. Try to plan your visit for a series of weekdays.


Most restaurants in Napa Valley invite diners to indulge in vineyard-purchased wines from that day’s tastings. Corkage fees apply.

Pedal to the metal

Renting a bike is an extremely popular way to enjoy the scenic valley. Enjoy the ride, but keep in mind it’s against the law to drink and cycle.

Bring your clubs

Napa Valley is home to 10 golf courses.

Go commercial

The wine tours at the bigger wineries are a bit more in-depth, so head there first to learn the process of winemaking (and the etiquette of tasting). Then head off the beaten path to small vendors to discover lesser-known wines.

Check ratings

Check Wine Spectator ratings before you go to get a handle on the top wineries and varietals in the area.
