• An "Innsider's" View of Napa Valley

Winter in Wine Country

While life in the wine country used to wind down in wintertime, those days are long gone, right along with the need to drive lengthy stretches along the Highway 29 to find a winery. The reality is, the Napa Valley is hopping all year round, which means anytime is a good time to plan a visit.

Life along the downtown Riverfront is booming with holiday buzz. From the Michael Holmes designed 8’ tall holiday present and Santa’s favorite chair to festive Thursdays where shops and restaurants along the Riverwalk stay open late and offer special surprises and deals to ensure your shopping experience is a fruitful one.

On December 15 between the hours of 11:30 and 2:30PM dozens of kayaks clad with Santas will take over the waterway for what is sure to be a memorable ride. Guests of the Napa River Inn are guaranteed primo views to all the action, right outside our dock.

Speaking of action, we’ve been busy too with the re-launch of our website, which is sure to make planning your visit a snap. Connect in real-time, online, with our concierge, from the comforts of your room or even along the wine trail as our site is easily accessible from your computer or any handheld device.
