The Meritage Resort and Spa is a good year-round destination. The hotel is set in the famous Napa Valley, not far from the heart of California’s most storied wine country. The weather is quite temperate here most of the year, so there’s really no bad time to make the trip. The autumn and winter seasons can be rainy and a bit cold, but they’ve been much warmer than normal in recent years. On a sunny day, you’ll enjoy hiking or cycling in the area or maybe ordering a picnic from the luxury hotel’s Blend Café. Winter is considered the slow season for the valley, so you’ll be able to drive around and get into wineries for tastings much more easily than in summer. Springtime in wine country is beautiful as the vines start to bud, and summers can be quite hot. Still, since the climate offers the grape vines warm days and cool nights, we suggest you pack a light jacket or pashmina any time you come to the Napa hotel.
