Want to visit Napa Valley like a true Wine Guide? Here’s how you do it. While most people map out the various vineyards and tasting rooms, Traveling Vineyard’s Wine Guides already know right where to go and how to make the perfect schedule for winery hopping. This gives them breathing time to check out Napa Valley’s non-wine activities. I know, I know, we go to Napa Valley specifically FOR the wine. But there is so much more to uncover in Napa Valley other than wine. The region is one of the most tempid and lush in the United States and with the influx of constant tourism, there are some pretty great things to see.
First, prep yourself for wine tastings and tours with a relaxing massage at Auberge Spa. The spa is located at Calistoga Ranch, which is nestled in an area known for its natural hot springs. You can also stay at Calistoga and enjoy the resort’s amazing activities like hot air balloon rides, hiking and biking, or a dinner crafted from local ingredients at the resort Lake house restaurant. After all that wine you may want to get a little exercise. Stop in to the Louise Stevenson State Park and enjoy the incredible vistas, mountain views and maybe take a whack at climbing Mt. St Helena. You can also try a different kind of tasting at Round Pond Estates and sample world-class olive oil.
