No one wants to look foolish when ordering wine, but if you’re not used to drinking it, a wine menu can be overwhelming. If you’re planning a trip to Napa Valley, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the basics of ordering wine at a restaurant. Take the opportunity as a learning experience that will introduce you to something new and exciting.

Meal Choice and Preferences

Red or white is the first step. Some people have a strong preference for one or the other, while others use their meal as a guide. For instance, white wines generally go well with a lighter dish such as chicken or fish, while red wines are best suited for heavier dinners like steak.

Glass or Bottle

If multiple people at the table are having wine, it’s generally more cost effective to purchase a bottle. If your table can agree on a bottle, that’s great. Otherwise, it’s best to stick to a single glass so that everyone can have what they

In our last series of Themes for a Wine Country Visit, we discussed some of the most common themes that visitors use to plan their trips to Napa Valley, including girls’ getaways, guys’ getaways, culinary adventures and romantic weekends. These aren’t the only themes you can enjoy, though. Below are a few more of our favorites, and be sure to check out the packages and special accommodations from Napa Valley Hotel and Suites.

Outdoor Lover

If you love being outdoors, plan a getaway that is built entirely outside, something that is possible in Napa Valley. There are nature preserves, waterfalls, wine caves, tall redwood trees and so much more to explore. Biking is a well loved activity, especially as traffic builds up on Hwy 29 and you can actually make better time on bike or foot. Don’t forget some of the more unique outdoor activities you can take part in, such as balloon rides, air sports and water sports.

Family Fun

Thanksgiving is synonymous with big family dinners, a turkey on the table and a slice of pumpkin pie for dessert. But, not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving this way. While it’s a wonderful day to spend with your loved ones and indulge in some turkey and delicacies, not everyone likes the cooking, entertaining and craziness that often accompanies the winter holidays. If you want to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday without having to lift a finger, plan a mini getaway. Plus, you’ll have a four-day weekend to enjoy.

Why Visit Napa for Thanksgiving

Napa Valley is an excellent place to come for Thanksgiving. Harvest season is over, so the crowds have dropped significantly, yet there are still enough visitors to keep the scene lively. The weather is near perfect, with mild temperatures and cool evenings. There is spectacular fall foliage to enjoy as well as festivals, wine tours and tastings and shopping. Since the crowds have died down, you can expect some of your best rates during this t
