We love Napa in the springtime…. It's hard to beat wine country when the sun is shining, the hills are bright green, lush lush fruits and vegetables are ready for picking, and cuddly baby animals nibbling at your fingers. Here are some of our top suggestions to celebrate spring in Northern California wine country!
No need to wait for a table! Marin and Sonoma grow much of the Bay Area's most famous foodstuffs, supplying our top restaurants with farm-fresh cheese, seafood, organic vegetables, and artisanal breads. Let us take you to the source and introduce you to the farms and people who make our region so darn delicious. Slurp oysters just steps from the water where they were grown, watch award-winning cheese being made, and discover places where traditional techniques and modern environmental priorities co-exist...and thrive. Book a foodie farm tour starting from San Francisco or Napa Valley today!
Cook the Season
Celebrate the sweetness of spring with Napa cooking classes, using ingredients at their peak. Our pro chef instructors grow most of their own produce at their Napa farm, and will teach you how to transform the season's bounty into delectable dishes to wow your friends and family at home. This is farm-to-table cooking at its best. Gluten-free, paleo, vegan, or cilantro haters? No problem, just let us know! Pro tip: Start the day with a private smartphone photography class, and your culinary creations will dominate Instagram.
Spring fever is real. Stretch your legs and shake it off with a trek through one of our many gorgeous natural parks, wine country bike tours, vineyard horseback riding in Napa, or awe-inspiring Muir Woods hikes. Feeling less athletic? We know a few secret spots where you can breathe in amazing art with our fresh wine country air. Not to mention all the best wineries with outdoor seating….
