Today’s New York Post has a decent write-up on how to enjoy the Napa Valley without spending an arm-and-a-leg.
Among the suggestions on places to wine, dine and stay, the article points out an often overlooked way to save a few bucks while in wine country:
Free wine tastings are a thing of the past. These days, $15 is considered cheap. What to do? Coupons! Many hotel lobbies will stock them, and they’re good for deals such as a free glass of bubbly at Mumm Napa in Rutherford.
We’ve got a drawer full of such coupons, compiled from various friends and family who’ve visited and stayed in local hotels and B&B’s, and they’re great. Also, if you plan to visit and have a friend or family member who lives in the area, don’t forget about the Napa Neighbor program, which provides Napa County residents discounts and special offers at a ton of wineries.
Give the article a read and happy bargain hunting!
