Napa Valley Fall Colors

It is time to view the Napa Valley Fall colors. November is a fabulous time to visit the Napa Valley. The harvest has been completed and things begin to slow down in the wine cellars of Napa. We have some gloriously sunny and clear days in November and those days bring out the best for viewing Napa Valley Fall colors. We took this shot in November of 2013 at the Castello di Amorosa winery near Calistoga at the northern end of the Valley. The winery sits up on a hillside affording great views of the Napa Valley. The Napa Valley sits between the Mayacamus Mountains on the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east. Other good spots to view the Napa Valley Fall colors are the Rutherford Hill Winery, Robert Sinksey, Mumm Napa, and the Miner Family Winery. There are several cross roads that run between Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail. Zigzag across the Valley on a few of these roads and you are likely to find some great views of vineyards changing colors. Except for Thanksgiving weekend, the Napa Valley tourist season is winding down. You will find much less traffic and less crowded tasting rooms. It is a great time to travel in the Napa Valley.
