Napa Valley Discounts & Free Stuff

I’ve been told that I’ve been writing a bit too much about Sonoma in this space and not enough about Napa Valley.

Point taken.

I do know that Napa can be expensive and no matter your budget for a trip into Napa Valley, it’s fun to get something at a discount isn’t it?

Here’s a few places you can score some interesting discounts for your next trip into Napa:

Napa Valley Register:  It’s really the only true home town newspaper for Napa Valley and the Register undoubtedly offers more local content than does the San Francisco Chronicle. Almost every locally based hotel and business of note does some sort of advertising with the Register and most offer a discount or two along the way, even if those discounts aren’t always easy to find.  From the Napa Valley Register’s home page, click their “Visit Napa Valley” link on the header and then search for the deals link on the right.  Looking through their current choices you’ll find everything from discounted hotel stays to free wine tastings at over 50 wineries

Wine Country This Week: The magazine does an outstanding job keeping current with exactly what’s happening in the Valley and offers 2 for 1 on basically anything you’d ever want to do on a visit. It’s also worth a read because they really do a good job at featuring lesser known and smaller wineries in their monthly issues.

Email Someone Like Us: Seriously.  If you’re visiting a wine region that we work with, really anywhere in California, Oregon or the state of Washington please email us first.  We’ll happily make reservations with you with wineries for tastings, most of the time you won’t be sitting in the tasting room with everyone else but being given a complete tour of the property, often by a member of the winemaking team.  It’s really the only way I’d ever want to see wine country and your first barrel tasting experience is usually one to remember.
