Valentine’s Day might be considered a “Hallmark holiday” to some, but it’s quite a popular day for couples and families. U.S. consumers spent roughly $20 billion on Valentine’s Day cards and gifts in 2018, according to the National Retail Foundation.
If you’re someone who gets into the Valentine’s Day spirit, you might be wondering what you can do this year. Our recommendation: Pay a visit to Napa Valley. Here you’ll find rolling hills of vines, hot air balloon rides and elegant wines paired with gourmet dishes – everything you need to celebrate a romantic weekend.
Here’s are four reasons why you should celebrate Valentine’s Day 2020 in Napa.
1. Exclusive wine tasting
If there’s one thing that Napa knows, it’s wine. Many wineries have specials for Valentine’s Day weekend, so call ahead or look online to see what your favorite places are offering. For example, Merryvale Vineyards offers a special flight of wines paired with Micaela Boreyko Chocolates for the month of February.
2. Memorable romantic experiences
Napa Valley has everything you need for a romantic getaway. Aside from the food and wine, there are also plenty of activities that you and your significant other can enjoy together. From hot air balloon rides to cooking classes to soaking in the mineral hot springs, there is something for every couple. If you’d rather have a relaxing weekend free from distractions, pack a picnic lunch and head to a local park.
3. Tasteful dining
Many of Napa’s restaurants offer special menus for Valentine’s Day, so this is your time to try something that isn’t on the regular menu. For instance, The Hess Collection hosts Feast of the Heart on February 15 from 5-8pm. This event brings together wine, food and art for couples to enjoy.
