Saint Valentine’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed every February 14th and it is actually celebrated in many countries around the world. While the day itself is named after an early Christian saint named Valentinus, it was first associated with romantic love in the high Middle Ages when the tradition of courtly love began to flourish.
Today, Valentine’s Day features traditions in which lovers express their love for each other through indulgent gifts. Many lovers prefer to signify the day, however, with an escape from the everyday—and Napa Valley is an ideal place for lovers.
