Picnic spots at Napa Valley Wineries

Picnic spots at Napa Valley Wineries

If there was such an award, Napa Valley would take the number one spot for best place to picnic. With its amazing food, wine and scenery there are few places nicer. Fortunately, you can picnic at many wineries that call this valley home. Every good picnic needs the right accouterments and there are many places to stop before visiting some of our favorite stops. From gourmet markets, delis and restaurants from Carneros to Calistoga you can find that great loaf of artisanal bread and endless choices of cheese and charcuterie.

Depending on your Napa Valley Winery selections, we would love to organize your picnic lunch for you. From boxed lunches with both savory and sweet treats to charcuterie and cheese platters, we’ll have it ready for you to enjoy lunch at your favorite stop! Check out our wonderful picnic lunch options here.

In addition to these picnic friendly Napa Valley wineries, Beau Wine Tours has access to many more hidden gems and private picnic options. When you book your tour with us, our concierge staff will gladly help arrange the perfect location and ambience for your trip.

Cairdean Wine Estate

cairdeanVisitors can pick up a whiskey-cured salmon sandwich on Mendocino seaweed-laced sourdough, a roast duck and barley salad, some lamb and white bean soup or warm game pie to eat on the willow-shaded patio or in a picnic area set with refurbished tables from the original Marketplace picnic lawn. Want to spread out on a blanket, relax under the magnificent oak trees on their picnic grounds complete with pastoral Napa Valley views? Cairdean means “friends” and the estate celebrates friendships and those held close to your heart.

Cairdean Estate is a place where guests can stop by whenever they like. Butterscots Bakery, Deli, and Culinary Market opens at seven o’clock each morning. It’s a bright and friendly place to drop in for an espresso and breakfast baked goodie, and return for a fresh salad, soup, or sandwich made with house-made bread at lunch. Guests are invited to taste a flight of wines, enjoy lunch on the patio, and then return in the evening for a very special dinner at The Farmer & The Fox Restaurant. Whatever time of day you’ll be welcome at Cairdean Estate, but we think lunchtime outside is particularly magical!
