Typically, you won’t see rain from the middle of May to November in Napa. But if you’re staying near the coast, it’s best to bring airy clothes for hot temperatures and layers for when it cools down at nighttime. December and January are undoubtedly the worst months to visit, as they’re cold which means the scenery isn’t nearly as beautiful and some of the area’s restaurants even close during these months. Come summer and fall, however, prepare yourself for temperatures up to 100 degrees.
It’s important to make sure there’s extra room in your suitcase — or to bring an entirely separate empty suitcase — for the wine you’ll inevitably want to take with you. If you decide not to take this route, many of the wineries will ship you the wines that you purchase.
