December in the Napa Valley

By visiting Napa in December, when the weather is wet and mild, you avoid the heat, crowds and prices of the summer season.  If you can come to the Napa Valley in the winter, it may become your favorite time to visit the Wine Country, as the traffic is usually the lightest.  This is probably the only time of the year where you will have a better chance of getting into your favorite Napa Valley restaurant without much advance notice.   So don’t skip the wine country in December, you might miss the harvesting, and the valley might not be quite as pretty as during other times of the year, but you pretty much have the whole place to yourself.
