Oh, you’ll have so much fun! I went a couple years ago with some girlfriends and had a blast. We spent most of our time in Sonoma and Alexander Valley, rather than in actual Napa. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the wineries, but I have a list at home, so I’ll try to look later and give you some specifics.

Well, all the best restaurants are there! The French Laundry, Auberge du Soleil, La Toque, Bouchon, just to name a few!

I would also see if any wineries offer a make-your-own-bottle-of-wine class. I did it once for a corporate event (don’t remember where we went) and it was SUPER fun.

I live about  a half hour away from Napa and go there as often as I can. 🙂 If you’re looking to stay at another hotel in addition to Kenwood, definitely look into Auberge du Soliel.  It is BEAUTIFUL.  As far as wineries go, Bouchaine in Carneros is my absolute favorite, amazing wine, beautiful vineyard. You actually can’t go wrong with any wineries in Carneros, if you go to Bouchaine, pop on over to Domaine Carneros, which is bubbly heaven!  I think Carneros is one of the higher end areas of Napa in regards to wine, but not more expensive. 

 

This is Domaine Carneros, where they have the BEST champagne

I hope you guys have so much fun!! My advice is also tell people you’re honeymooning, my fiance took me the weekend after we got engaged and we were so happy he just kept blurting out, “we just got engaged!!” and the vinters would pour us a complementary glass 🙂 the people in Napa are great. Also, I think it’s great you’re going February/March, it’s the off-season and will be less crowded, and it’s so much better to go wine tasting when you don’t have to wait. Feel free to message me if you want to know more! 🙂
