Fall is our favorite time to visit Napa Valley wineries. The air is crisp, the leaves are colorful, the wine is freshly bottled and the buzzy tourist season of crowded wine tours is blessedly over. Whether you take a quick day trip or plant to stay a couple days (try one of the best Napa hotels or Airbnbs) these Napa Valley wineries offer the quintessential Wine Country experience, from the historic Clos du Val to the modern Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. When you're done exploring Napa, feel free to check out the best Sonoma wineries next.
