Top Tips for a Company Retreat in Napa

Expert Advice for a Retreat in Napa

  1. Don’t Just Focus on Wine: Yes, it’s famous for it’s wineries, but that’s not all Napa is known for. 1 - 2 wine-centred activities is more than enough, and make sure to incorporate variety!
  2. Think About the Season: The annual grape harvest is August to October, making it a very busy and more expensive season, consider late spring as an alternative for ideal weather and slightly lower prices!
  3. Consider Transportation: The region is widely spread out, so make sure that you include transfers into your budget for any activity off-resort!
  4. Don’t Stay On Resort The Whole Time: Though incredibly relaxing, your team may get bored if they are cooped up at the hotel the whole time, try taking them offsite for a meal, or activity, or even into town to shop to change it up!
  5. Pack Weather Appropriate Clothing: Remind your team to bring layers! While hot in the day, the weather does fluctuate drastically, so ensure they are prepared.

Any Other Considerations for an Offsite in Napa

Napa is a very safe region, so your entire team can feel comfortable! If heading into town at night, exercise regular caution, and don’t wander out of the regular tourist areas.
