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 $20 to $25 per person, so it's important to do a bit of planning if you're trying to do Napa on a Budget.

I was the first to put all of the 2 for 1 discount Napa wine tasting coupons in one place and today Napa Tourist Guide continues to be the #1 choice for finding wine tasting deals.  Every deal, every legit coupon, every wine tasting offer is right here. 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!  Looking for Sonoma Coupons?

Is the Priority Wine Pass the BEST Way to Get Napa Deals?

Absolutely!  I used to recommend other passport cards, phone apps and coupons sites but none of them have the breadth of offers as the PWP, from well known wineries like Beringer or Sterling to high end experiences discounted to down to Earth prices.  No fake coupons, no phone app posting requirements, you just show it and start tasting.  Discounts on the Wine Train, the castle, hotels, hot air balloon rides, and good for a year, it pays for itself before you finish at your second stop, sometimes even sooner!    Get it Here to get my discount and only get ONE pass per couple.  And remember, every pass comes with FREE personal advice from me - just email me!
