Fall is a wonderful time to visit the California wine country. The weather is pristine, the colors of the vineyards and surrounding landscape are breathtaking, and weekends are brimming with events to enjoy. One thing our autumn guests at the Churchill Manor have discovered there is nothing like a Napa Valley Halloween. Whether you decide to get all decked out in a full costume, or just don glasses, a hat or a mysterious mustache, Halloween in wine country is nothing but fun. Be sure to download a copy of our free Vacation Guide to the Napa Valley to find out about other annual events!
For over 40 years, the Poseidon Vineyard has been producing delightful wines. With so many variations to choose from, Poseidon Vineyard, owned by Obsidian Ridge, provides a welcoming tasting room where you can sip and savor their many different creations.

The 2018 festivities run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 through Wednesday, Oct. 31 at the Tasting Room. Those in costume will receive a complimentary wine tasting.

Castello di Amarosa knows how to celebrate a Napa Valley Halloween. Its annual Pagan Ball has become one of the season’s largest parties. Show up in costume (it’s a must), and get ready for some tricks and treats!
