Napa on a Budget: Free Wine Tasting Coupons and Deals

Napa on a Budget: Every Free Wine Tasting Deal, Coupon  and Discount in Napa, Right Here

I remember the days when your first stop in Napa wasn't the ATM.  Back in the 80's I'd roll down the windows in my Datsun, crank up a mix tape and drop in winery after winery without a worry about cost or value.  Today wine tasting is expensive, typically $25 to $50 per person, and a weekend hotel can be as much as your monthly rent or mortgage payment.

But with a little bit of planning you can still do Napa on a budget. From budget hotels to dining to cheap wine tasting and tours, follow me and I’ll show you the tricks to planning the ultimate trip to Napa without breaking the bank.

And if all of this is a bit overwhelming, email me and I'll help you pick your wineries and put them all together into a cool day agenda - for free!

Napa Wineries with FREE Tastings?

Sutter Home Napa Winery free tastings

Sutter home: THE last of the truly free tastings

Only one winery left with free tastings in Napa? Yup. These are the guys who created the infamous White Zinfandel, the wine mocked by wine snobs and found in every 7/11 wine collection. It’s the wine that begs to be served over ice. But hey, it’s free and there’s nothing wrong with that. The grounds are beautiful as well so if you’re trying to stretch your dollar then Sutter Home needs to be on your list. Is it up there with Napa’s best? No. But it’s free and that ain’t nothing! Beware of websites claiming to have tons of secret free tastings. Most of those are either out of date or “come ons” to get you to buy or click something.

Sutter Home - 277 St. Helena Hwy (Hwy. 29) South
St. Helena, CA 94574 (707) 963-3104   ext. 4208

The Best “cheap” Places to stay in napa

Where to Start Your Hotel Search for Your Trip to Napa… on a budget

Finding a hotel in Napa and doing it on a budget just got a lot easier! You can now book hotels via my site and the company I use offers a “best rate guarantee” so you don’t have to worry about overpaying. They also partnered with TripAdvisor for reviews and ratings. And know that when you book through my site you’re helping keep me in business as they pay me a small fee. Thanks!

My favorite locations to start for less expensive hotels are Downtown Napa, Calistoga, and if you stay on the outskirts of Napa I would look into American Canyon. Book early as Napa fills up fast!
