A visit to Yountville would not be complete without a wine tasting experience!  With over 14 tasting rooms all in strollable distance and 7 winery properties within a few miles drive, it is no wonder many refer to Yountville as The Heart of Napa Valley. While there has been some chatter about how expensive wine tasting in Napa Valley has become, we found 15 options in Yountville, all $50 and under!

Please note that tasting experiences change often, so please make sure to confirm dates, prices and offers with the wineries and tasting rooms before visiting.  It is great to note that many of our Yountville tasting rooms and wineries are available for same day reservations and visits, so do not hesitate to pick up the phone and call to confirm openings if you happen to land in town without plans!
