Hi Dav,

It would really help if you would give us more information, such as: wines you like, what is your lodging budget (Napa Valley goes from high to ridiculous). Mid week rates (Sunday through Thursday) are normally $100.00 cheaper than weekends for the same room.

If you are flexible, I would recommend visiting Napa Valley during the week, not on weekends when things are really busy. As ssala indicated, if possible, stay away from summer because of the crowds. If not, really, anytime going to Napa Valley is good. Each season has it's own merits. Personally, I like March and October. October will be a little busier with crush going on.

Tell us more about your likes and budget, and maybe we can help you more.

You will definitely get a lot of thoughts and might want to search through older messages on the board to get a little more specificity to your questions. But here's a start.
My wife and I tend to visit in the spring which we love, but I can imagine autumn would be a wonderful time as well. I tend to avoid summers in Napa as I've heard it can get a bit crowded.
Obviously, we go to taste wine, tour vineyards or caves, etc. It would be helpful to know what kinds of wine you prefer. Everyone on this list has their favorites.
As to housing, we recently have begun to use the website VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) and there are many properties in the valley. I like to cook (and save money by not eating out all the time)and we like a place to "stretch out".
My standard advice is to immediately order the Preiser Key (http://www.preiserkey.com/). It is a yearly magazine-type publication with tons of information including maps.
Cheers, Scott

We are planning a trip to Napa this year and looking for the best time of year to go, where to stay, and what are :"must do" activities.
