Don’t just have a great time in the Napa Valley, have a phenomenal time! We suggest these five fun things to do in the Napa Valley in June. Enjoy!
Do a different type of wine tasting
Wine tasting is of course the main tourist activity in the Napa Valley, so why not break from the norm and do a different type of wine tasting? For example, at Round Pond winery there is a selection of three different extended tour and tasting sessions. Try the Il Pranzo Lunch or the Barrel Tour and Tasting. Check the Round Pond Website for specifics of the event, including fees and reservations. Robert Sinskey Vineyards and Peju Winery also have special tastings along with tours and food pairings.
Watch the Geyser go off on Tubbs Lane in Calistoga
Why not combine wine tasting and one of nature’s amazing displays? The Old Faithful Geyser goes off every 30 minutes without a hitch. It is located on Tubbs Lane just north of Calistoga. Near Old Faithful and on Tubbs Lane are the tasting rooms of Chateau Montelena, Summers Estate Winery and Envy Wines. Old Faithful Geyser of California is open to visitors 7 days a week, including holidays. Hours are 9 AM – 5 PM in the winter and 9 AM – 6 PM in the summer.
Morning walk in Yountville
Start your morning in the Napa Valley with a little exercise and some wonderful views of the mountains and vineyards. You can walk Washington Street in both directions. Going north on Washington takes you past the vegetable garden of the famous French Laundry Restaurant. Now that’s a vegetable garden! We love taking a morning walk or run along Yount Street and Yount Mill Road. This road is lined with vineyards and mountain views. Pick up the walk where Yount Street meets Washington Street in the center of Yountville. Yount Street will eventually become Yount Mill.
Visit a sparkling wine house
Sipping bubbly in June and the rest of the Summer is a delightful way to enjoy a day outdoors. Why not visit one of Napa Valley’s finest sparkling wine makers? Choose among Mumm Napa, Domaine Chandon or Schramsberg. Each of these sparkling houses has tours and tastings. Schramsberg requires reservations. The courtyard at Mumm Napa overlooks the Valley. Just sip and relax!
Mondavi Wine Concerts
June 29th is the first concert in the Robert Mondavi series of concerts at the Robert Mondavi Winery. Martina McBride is the featured artist for the first event in this amazing summer concert series that benefits the children of the Napa Valley.
