What to do on Valentine’s Day in the Napa Valley

The Napa Valley is for lovers - so the saying goes. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is the time to lock down plans, make reservations, and create the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience for your loved one. Whether you are looking for a romantic night out on the town or a new experience to shake things up this Valentine’s Day, you’ll find plenty of ways to celebrate the day of love in the Napa Valley.

Find Romance on the Rails with Napa Valley Wine Train

Make a reservation for Napa Valley Wine Train’s exclusive Valentine’s Day lunch or dinner. Step aboard the vintage train for a personalized experience to celebrate your love in style. Receive a welcome glass of sparkling wine, take a 3-hour rail tour north through the valley, indulge in a multi-course gourmet meal prepared by their culinary team, and listen to the beautiful sounds of a strolling violinist.

Rent an Exotic Car for the Day

From downtown segway tours to a hosted wine trolley tour, the Napa Valley makes it easy for you to explore wine country on wheels. Don’t be afraid to live large this Valentine’s Day. Visit Vintage Auto Rentals to tour the Napa Valley in style. Choose from a 1962 Rolls Royce, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin, or Ferrari to rent for a few hours and cruise the scenic Silverado Trail north with your sweetheart.

Find a Restaurant that does Dinner on the Cheap

You don’t need to break the bank with an expensive dinner to show your love. Skip the multicourse prix fixe menu and keep it casual by dining at one of the Napa Valley’s hidden gem restaurants this Valentine’s Day. Amp up the romance with one of our favorite Michelin-star worthy eateries, without the high price point typical of the area.

Find the Perfect Valentine’s Day Wine Pairing

Feel the love this Valentine's Day with a wine and chocolate pairing. Visit Priest Ranch for their Chocolate & Wine Experience, featuring five wines paired with sweets by Kollar Chocolates. Merryvale Vineyards and Grgich Hills Estate are both celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special flight of estate wines paired with Micaela Boreyko Chocolates and specialty crafted truffles. For something extra special, visit The Aviary at Ackerman Heritage House in Napa for a night of wine paired with the finest small batch caviars from Passmore Ranch.

Watch the Sunset over the Mayacamas Mountains

Swing by one of the Napa Valley’s gourmet chocolate shops and hand-pick your own box to take with you to view a spectacular California wine country sunset. Watch the sky turn brilliant hues of orange, pink, and red as the sun sets over the Mayacamas Mountains. We recommend taking the drive up Monticello Road into the Vaca Mountains for open skies or visiting the iconic Grape Crusher statue along Highway 29 for the best views.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Romantic Stay at Napa Winery Inn

Opt for a night in and avoid the crowds of celebrating couples by spending the night with Napa Winery Inn. There is plenty of privacy and great hospitality waiting for you in our contemporary guest rooms. Order takeout from one of our favorite local restaurants or create your own in-room picnic.

Pick up some specialty foods from nearby Oxbow Public Market or the historic Oakville Grocery and make it fun by keeping the theme ‘red’ and ‘pink’ - think rosé wine, beet salad, strawberries, red Windsor cheese, tomato-based pasta dishes, and red velvet cupcakes. Join us after dinner for a complimentary nightly hosted wine tasting. Retreat to your room to refresh with a bubble bath in your whirlpool tub and relax in a comfortable king bed with the highest quality bedding while you take in a flick on your flat-screen TV or stream your favorite romantic film with our complimentary high speed internet.
