    Packing Tips

    1. Wear comfortable shoes: Napa Valley holds acres of vineyards, most of which guests are able to stroll. If you want to wear heels or shoes not meant for long distances, we suggest storing a comfortable pair in your car. This way, you can still take Instagram-worthy photos and be prepared.

    2. Denim is essential: While Spring and Summer have warmer afternoons, temperatures can still drop as much as 30 degrees. A denim jacket will be your best friend as it is not too thick during warmer days, versatile, and is a fashion staple that never goes out of style.

    3. Protect your face: In addition to sunscreen, wearing a hat will also protect your skin from the sun's UV rays. Sunhats are great for both men and women, and pair great with either vibrant or neutral colors.
