Things to do in the Napa Valley for Valentine’s Day
Ian White of 7x7SF continues with his best of series for wineries and things to do here in the Napa Valley. This time he has written about a very appropriate subject, The Perfect Valentines Day in Napa and Romantic Wine Country Specials. If you find his information as useful and fun as I do, please go to the 7x7SF site and give them some link-love by clicking on a few of the ads. Below I have his info for things to do in the Napa Valley. You will need to go to his article to see what’s happening in Sonoma and elsewhere around the Bay Area.
Some say Valentines Day is a Hallmark Holiday, but it’s a good excuse to be romantic and treat yourself and your loved one to something sexy (or at least gluttonous). With that in mind, we’ve planned a perfect day for you in Napa and found the best that the surrounding wine countries have to offer. So, this year, skip the teddy bear and flowers and head up to the wine country with your sweet, or commiserate in style with your pals.
Perfect Day in Napa
Stay the night at the historic and luxurious Napa River Inn and start your day with breakfast in bed, courtesy of Sweetie Pie’s. The bonus here is that you don’t have to worry about getting crumbs in the bed.
Since Valentines Day is all about hearts, Ehlers Estate is a perfect place to begin as 100% of the proceeds from their wine sales go to international cardiovascular research. The setting and the winery itself are very romantic but call 48 hours in advance for the Valentine’s special, Perfectly Paired, which starts with a stroll in the vineyards and barrel sample and ends with a paring of Ehlers’ complex and tasty wines with hand-made confections fromWoodhouse Chocolates.
Pick restaurants, picnic spots, and wineries using 7×7’s Top 7 most Romantic things to do in Napa. If it’s photo-ops and vistas that you’re into, check out Wineries With the Best Views. If you like it sappy, hit Gargiulo and Silverado Vineyards as they have equally beautiful but opposing (north to south) views of the valley, and you can draw all kinds of romantic parallels for you next poem.
If you’re looking for a romantic after-dinner spot, both the John Anthony Lounge and1313 Main are open late and have suave vibes, great wines, and private areas. Others might enjoy a little music at Silo’s Jazz Club.
