Top Napa Destinations for Your Bachelor/Bachelorette Party


Rolling vineyards, best friends, world-renowned wine… Sounds like the perfect setting to celebrate your upcoming wedding, right? Napa Valley, with its endless vineyards, luxurious retreats, and indulgent experiences, offers the ultimate backdrop for an unforgettable bachelor or bachelorette party. Let’s uncork the secret destinations that will make your party pop!

Vineyard Hopping

Begin your grape escape at Domaine Carneros, famous for its sparkling wine and Pinot Noir. Toast to friendship on their terrace with panoramic views, making you feel like royalty. From there, head to Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, the winery that put Napa on the map. Their cabernet, coupled with the tale of beating the French in a blind taste test, will swell your chest with pride.


[On May 24, 1976, the Paris Wine Tasting, orchestrated by English wine merchant Steven Spurrier, dramatically shifted the global perception of California wines. Curious about how Californian varieties would compare to French vintages, Spurrier organized a blind tasting aligning top French Bordeaux and white Burgundies against California's Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays, part of the American Bicentennial celebrations. The professional French jury was stunned when the 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon and the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay from Napa Valley triumphed over esteemed French labels, marking a pivotal moment in wine history.]


Want more than a sip? Castello di Amorosa offers that in abundance. An authentically-styled 13th-century Tuscan castle and winery, it's not just a wine tour; it's a time machine to medieval splendor. And for the artsy soul, Hall Wines not only offers robust reds but also boasts a contemporary art collection that could rival galleries.


Luxury Retreats


Relax

For a touch of pampering, book your crew into Auberge du Soleil. With private maisons, a Michelin-starred restaurant, and a world-class spa, this adults-only resort whispers relaxation and luxury. Imagine a group yoga session followed by a spa day, melting all your wedding stress away.


Stay Amidst the Vineyards

Prefer to wake up in a vineyard? Calistoga Ranch is your spot. Hidden in a private canyon, their lodges offer the perfect mix of outdoor freedom and indoor luxury. A private deck and hot tub under the stars? Yes, please!


Adventure Awaits


Take to the Skies

Start your day soaring above the clouds in a hot air balloon. Companies like Balloons Above the Valley provide a bird’s-eye view of the sunrise, painting the vineyards below in golden hues. It's not just a ride; it's floating on cloud wine!


Cycle the Vines

For the more earth-bound adventurers, how about a cycling tour? Outfits like Napa Valley Bike Tours guide you along the Silverado Trail, visiting hand-picked wineries, and yes, they take care of your purchases and ship them to your home.


Wining & Dining

Your taste buds deserve a party too! If you’re willing to splurge, begin with the legendary The French Laundry — reservation required and oh-so-worth-it for a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience.
