Use a Map to Pick Which Wineries to Visit
Did you know there are more than 600 wineries in Sonoma County and Napa Valley combined? For the perfect girls’ weekend in Napa Valley, you need to create a list of the wineries and vineyards that offer the taste and experience you’re looking for.
You can use online reviews and recommendations from friends and families to decide which wineries to visit to help you shortlist a few for your trip. Don’t make the mistake of picking wineries randomly; use a map when planning your visit to ensure that it makes sense logistically. It can take an hour to drive from one winery to another; you don’t want to be driving back and forth on your visit.
Hire a driver
Wine Country is nothing like the city, you won’t find Ubers waiting for you at every corner. It can take up to half an hour for an Uber to arrive if not longer; save yourself money and time.
If you and your friends intend to sip wine all day long, then you’re going to need to hire a driver. It’s much easier and cost-effective to hire a driver to take you to all the wineries and vineyards instead of counting on Ubers.
Most of the wineries in Napa Valley require visitors to make appointments beforehand; very few will let you walk-in. When you’re exploring Napa Valley with a group of friends you’ll most likely have to make reservations for all the wineries that you intend to visit.
It’s better to make reservations at least a month before your Girls’ Weekend in Napa Valley.
Set a Budget
You may have gone to wine tastings around town for a standard fee of just $15–20; in Napa Valley, you’re going to have to loosen the purse-strings a little. Tasting fees in Napa Valley usually range between $80–$100—sometimes even more!
Ask your girls how much they’re comfortable spending on their trip, you don’t want to feel guilty for overspending while you’re there. Once you much you’re willing to spend on the trip, you can begin to look for wineries that fit your budget. Napa Valley can be pricey, but there are plenty of affordable wineries there too.
