Share a romantic hot air balloon ride or picnic in Napa Valley



Published:

Skip the crowded ski destinations and head for the quaint town of Yountville in Napa Valley. For Valentine’s Day, share a romantic hot air balloon ride or picnic in the French Laundry garden. And don’t miss events like the monthly Art House Short Film Series and wine pairing in the Jessup Cellars tasting gallery, February 15. The first annual Cabernet festival, CabFestNV, takes place February 28–March 2, with 100 Napa wineries participating. Finally, the foodie fair Taste of Yountville is March 14–16.
