I think that September is a great time to visit, although it may be a little crazy since harvest is in September and October. There are a number of great tours where you can learn a lot about wines. If you've never been before, the Mondavi wine tour used to be very educational for novices. I haven't been in years, so I don't know if it still is, but I'm sure someone here will know.

I just came back from Napa and I will be posting some information about the places we visited. Hopefully this week after I've caught up a little.

Hi Cook Family,

What a great place to celebrate an anniversary. I can give you one suggestion for lodging, the one we use each time, The Stevenson Manor Best Western Inn. This is a "cut above" the normal BW, plus it has just recently been renovated. http://www.stevensonmanor.com/ You should be able to stay here within your budget.

Once you have chosen a place to stay, then maybe we can help you with more suggestions.

So I've read a few of the posts.... and wow, very overwhelming!! We are coming to the Napa Valley area for about 3 days the last week of September for our anniversary. We have never been, nor do we know anyone who has been.

We are interested in vising a few different wineries. My husband is definitely the type that likes to be educated as well as be able to ask lots of questions. He loves his red wines as well! I'm open to anything really, I'd love to have a tour of some of the smaller, more fun and interactive places.

Since we will be there for 3 days, I think one of the days we'd love to have some type of driver so we can both drink and not have to worry about driving. Are there any group tours or suggestions on drivers?

Also, what hotels/ b&b's would you suggest? We don't want anything crazy expensive(under $200/night?) We would be there during the week(Sunday through Tuesday.) I also don't want to stay in a crappy place! haha.

Any insight would be helpful! Thanks
