The Best of Napa Valley
Local Wally's Guide to Napa Wine Country

Ever wish you knew someone who could show you the secrets of Napa Valley? Someone who knew the best places to stay, the best wineries to visit, the best places to eat, and where to find all the free discount wine tasting coupons? Well guess what? Your wish just got granted!

Hi, I'm Local Wally and I know Napa. I was lucky enough to grow up near here and have spent the last 30 years learning the secrets of how to plan a successful Napa Valley vacation. If it's good, it's here. If it's not, it's not!

Best hotels, wineries and restaurants...and free winery coupons

Peju, Carnero's Inn, The French Laundry

Unlike other guides with endless lists of "recommendations", I'll cut to the chase and show you the Best of Napa. You don't need a list of every winery, just the ones you should visit. And who needs a list of every hotel when you can get a list of the best places to stay, from best budget to best spa resort. And doesn't a list of the best places to eat in Napa sound better than a list of every restaurant in town? That's what Local Wally is all about.

Best yet, when it's time to Book a Hotel you get the Local Wally Best Rate Guarantee. You won't find a cheaper rate for Napa Valley hotels, period. And when it comes to discount winetasting, Local Wally's got your back with the most complete list of every free tasting in Napa and Sonoma. And to make it even better you can now get my Priority Wine Pass that not only gets you freebies but VIP treatment as well. Use Promo code "localwally" when you sign up to get a special deal. Don't come to Napa without the card!

So why risk your vacation with advice from the big tourist books or corporate websites that only recommend their advertisers? Trust the locals to give you the real deal, and trust Local Wally to show you the tips that only insiders know!

FALL 2014: Can you smell the grapes in the air? End of Summer and Fall might be hot but it's also harvest time where you'll see the wineries in action as they crush the grapes and start the wine making progress.
