Here is our guide on where to and how to make your proposal in Napa Valley.
And what better to do at a venue that is basically love potion number 9 for all the senses? Ask the big question. Because there won't be a more amorous time or place, and there's no way your partner is saying 'no' surrounded by Cabernet and these rolling Napa Valley hills.
There are more romantic fireplaces and sweeping vineyard vistas than one could ever image, so even pulling over on the side of a road for a quick hike and spontaneous bend of the knee will result in a seriously magic moment.
If you want to plan it out a bit in advance for ultimate effect, here are some sure-fire ways to guarantee a 'yes:'
Private balcony winery tasting
Domaine Carneros has their own private château balcony overlooking the Carneros vineyards. This "Sparkling Suite" includes a private tasting for two of sparkling wines and Pinot Noirs, paired perfectly with caviar, charcuterie and all the necessary accoutrements. As a keepsake, you’ll be gifted with a bottle to take home.
Picnic among art and vineyards
Stroll through the sculpture garden at Auberge du Soleil, where their concierge can setup the perfect picnic proposal surrounded by art and vineyards where you can toast after the 'Yes.' End your perfect proposal with Michelin-star lunch at The Restaurant at Auberge, overlooking the entire Napa Valley. Tip: have them arrange for a portrait photographer, hidden from view, to snap shots of the priceless moment.
Authentic Tuscan castle and winery
Castello di Amorosa, the authentic medieval (13th-century) Italian Tuscan castle and winery nestled into the mountains of Calistoga, is the perfect place to drop one knee. They feature two proposal packages to make sure you have the perfect opportunity to get a 'Yes.'
Private hot air balloon ride
Request a private balloon from Napa Valley Aloft just for the two of you for the ultimate engagement-with-a-view experience. They can include sparkling wine and a photo session.
