Wild Mustard Season

January - March

From January until the end of March the Napa Valley erupts in a riotous carpet of yellow. Mustard season is one of the best-kept secrets in wine country and to those in the know considered the season between the seasons and one of the best "bud breaks" to visit in the first quarter.

While visitors are bound to encounter the pops of color throughout the region, Visit Napa Valley has curated a map with the most Instagram-worthy spots, stretching from Calistoga to American Canyon. Among the locations are Calistoga's Oat Hill Mine Trailhead, Oakville's Oakville Grade Road, Yountville's Washington Street, and Napa's Orchard Avenue and Dry Creek Road. Parts of the Silverado Trail parallel to Yountville also offer spectacular views.
