March is one of the most exciting times of the year in Napa Valley, largely because there is so much excitement just around the corner. Spring is upon us, and we have another wine and travel season to look forward to. Starting April 1 is Napa Valley Arts in April. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or a cultural spring break, mark your calendar for Arts in April.
What is Arts in April?
There are more than 75 wineries with art on display throughout Napa Valley, and during Arts in April, we celebrate our favorite pieces. Of course, there is wine involved, as well as special tastings, artist events and winery art installations. Every art buff will find something to marvel over, whether they’re a sucker for Belle Epoch or contemporary.
How Can I Join in the Fun?
Arts in April lasts the entire month of April, so all you have to do is book a getaway during this month and you can enjoy a slice of Arts in April. There are many lodging offers in the area, which means you should have no problem finding a luxury hotel at a great price, especially since it’s still relatively early in the tourist season. Check out Napa Valley Hotel and Suites for exemplary service, cozy rooms and affordable rates. Best of all, the hotel is located in the heart of Napa Valley, so you can visit any winery you want.
Which Wineries are Participating?
Each winery has its own protocol, so it’s important to call ahead before making plans. For a breakdown of each participating winery and their dates, click here. In general, the wineries put various pieces of art on display and serve wine and cheese. You may also have the chance to meet the artist and learn about their work. These special events and artist meet-and-greets are only offered a few days out of the month, but most wineries have their works of art on display all month.
In addition to viewing the art and sculptures, you can also stroll along the vineyards and agricultural fields at some of the wineries. It’s still quiet at this time of the year, so it’s nice to see Napa Valley in a different light.
