Fernanda Del Gaiso, Picnic Three Co-Founder & Isabel Freeman, Napavalleytip Creator

With wonderful weather starting in spring and stunning scenery year-round, Napa Valley is a picnic paradise. For me, nothing is better than going out for a wine tasting or going to a park to watch the sunset with a delicious basket containing some favorite goodies and wine.

Napa has always been an amazing area for outdoor activities such as hiking, riding bikes, and picnicking at a winery or in a beautiful park, especially during the spring, summer, and fall seasons!!

A Customized Basket Made by Picnic Three & Napavalleytip

I am a picnic lover, so I am fortunate to have a partnership with my fabulous friend Fernanda Del Gaiso, who is an interior designer and Picnic Three Co-Founder. Fernanda creates incredible picnic baskets and sets up amazing picnic events (engagements, birthday parties, romantic moments, friend gatherings, or any intimate celebrations) throughout the Bay Area. After years of friendship, we joined forces with the idea of providing a Napa Valley customized picnic basket that comes with fresh and healthy food, wine of your choice, picnic utensils, and a cozy and waterproof blanket as shown in the picture above.

Once in Napa, Sonoma, or anywhere in the Bay Area, you can order directly with me on my Napavalleytip Instagram page or at the Picnic Three website. We will make sure to provide you with the items needed to experience a wonderful time during your visit to the wine Country.

Good news: many Napa Valley wineries allow you to bring your own picnic setting at no charge (but they do ask that you purchase a bottle or a tasting). I will list some great options for you to enjoy your picnic:

Bouchaine Vineyards – buy a wine kit at the winery and enjoy your own picnic provisions in their gorgeous garden.

Pestoni Family Estate Winery – purchase a wine tasting flight and use their picnic grounds and bocce court.

Laird Family Estate – buy a bottle of wine and you can bring your own food at this family-friendly winery. 

Frank Family Vineyards – make a reservation for a tasting and enjoy your picnic basket. Please note all visitors must be at least 21 years of age.

Pope Valley Winery – bring your family, reserve a table, and enjoy a wine tasting with your own picnic food.

Yountville Park – not a winery but Yountville is a charming little town that has amazing parks where you can setup your blanket/picnic basket and enjoy your time in a beautiful and peaceful environment.

Let me be your Concierge during your stay to make sure you are 100% happy in the legendary Napa Valley!

With Love,

    Isabel, you forgot about V. Sattui! They are a generous family winery with beautiful picnic grounds and a lovely deli. How did you miss that one?!
