Again during Summer and holidays the hotel rates in Napa Valley can sky rocket. Sometimes the rates in Napa Valley are even more expensive then hotel rates in San Francisco this is if you are lucky to get a reservation especially during the weekends. Holidays are another time of the year when rates spike. During the rainy season (Dec, Jan, Feb) the hotel rates are lower but there are rains. March/April is that sweet spot when you can get really good deals on hotel rates because the tourists haven’t really started to flock in yet.

Can Fall also be the best time to visit Napa Valley?
Yes, if you are really into wine and want to learn everything about it and see wineries fully working then early fall months (September & October) is absolutely the best time to visit Napa Valley. We say this because wine harvesting happens around this time of the year in Napa Valley. You can see workers picking grapes, trucks carrying them into wineries, crushers crushing the grapes. During fall months the entire valley smells like wine. You can even book Grape Stomping at some wineries so you can personally experience what does it feel like to stomp grapes with your own feet. Yes, the prices will be high during during fall, but the summer crowds are gone by now and the weather tends not to be as HOT as summer months.
