In the Fall is when the grapes get harvested and wine production gets going. This is also when the grapes are “crushed” and many wineries have special events to celebrate. With the wine flowing and excitement in the air, the Harvest is one of the best times to visit Napa Valley. Check out Napa Valley Vintners for updates on this year’s harvest.
While the Harvest does bring people, the Fall is not as busy as the Summer. Fewer people means less traffic, easier dinner reservations, and visiting more wineries each day.
Vintners and businesses also have the luxury of slowing down and focusing on guests. You can spend one-on-one time with winemakers learning the intricacies of the wine making process where before you may have fought to get in for a tour. You will gain a much more memorable and educational experience visiting Napa in the fall.
NVFF screening, hospitality and special event venues are clustered in and around the four walk-able villages of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga, where 120 films, 300 filmmakers, 150 wineries and 50 chefs actively engage our audiences. Each town has a box office, multiple screening venues, a wine pavilion, “passholder perks” and special events taking place throughout each day and night. The complete film lineup, celebrity tributes, and special event details will be announced in early September.
