Spring is such a breathtaking time to visit wine country. Every year, the air feels fresher, the green leaves are vibrant and the spring blooms are just about everywhere you turn. From trees to grassy knolls and shrubbery, there are plenty of gorgeous works in motion from Mother Nature starting end of March and throughout April.
A few scenes to enjoy while you are on your mini spring vacation include:
- The Mustard Blooms – Mustard blooms will fill the valley floors and vineyards starting in February and throughout spring. They can be seen at numerous wineries and even in the fields of Napa.
- Cherry Blossoms – Cherry blossom trees are located throughout Napa Valley and they begin to fully bloom in March. They often line vineyards, local parks and even restaurants.
- Magnolia Trees – These are located in the older areas of Napa and feature large, silky buds. You can see them in the front yards of 2211 First Street and 1986 Main Street in downtown Napa.
- Western Redbud – This is an early-blooming tree that has purple flowers gracefully covering the entire tree. It grows in the drought-tolerant areas of Napa and can grow as tall as 20 feet. Some of the best places to see these are along Big Ranch Road and Brown’s Valley Road.
- Locust – Also known as Robinia ambigua, this tree is a member of the pea family. Each spring it features lavender to pink flowers that are in eight to 10-inch clusters. It is a larger tree growing up to 50 feet wide. The best place to spot one is at the corner of Imola and Soscol Avenue in Napa.
