Napa Valley summers are marked by warm days, pleasant evenings, and cool nights. The grapes love this ideal Mediterranean climate and so do we! Our summer weather patterns are also one of the reasons we love a great resort pool. We’re not above selecting our accommodation by what level of relaxation and floating potential lies ahead.
