Discover Autumn’s Embrace: 5 Intimate Wineries for a Cozy Fall Retreat


As autumn unfurls its vibrant tapestry, Napa Valley and Sonoma beckon with a special kind of magic. At ALTA Luxury Transportation, we’re delighted to guide you to five hidden gems, each promising a unique and intimate experience amidst the autumnal beauty.

  1. Porter Family Vineyards: Deep in the heart of Coombsville on a no-through road, Porter Family Vineyards unveils a sanctuary of serenity. Co-proprietor Tim and Bev invite you to savor their exquisite wines while being enveloped by the enchanting fall landscape. For those in the know, a special treat awaits – the family’s loyal golden retriever, aptly named ‘Harvest’, is often found playfully exploring the vineyard rows.
  2. Red Cap Vineyards: On the slopes of Howell Mountain, Red Cap Vineyards radiates hospitality and warmth from the Altemus family. The rustic tasting room, with its crackling fireplace, creates a cozy haven to relish their handcrafted wines, surrounded by the mountain’s natural grandeur. Keep an eye out for the hidden gem nestled amidst the vines – a centuries-old oak tree that has become the silent witness to countless harvests. Its sprawling branches offer a secret spot to pause and soak in the breathtaking views.
  3. Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery: Nestled in the Sonoma Valley, Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery is a celebration of the winemaker’s art. With its intimate setting and meticulously crafted wines, it invites you to unwind and appreciate the nuanced symphony of autumn. Insider tip: For a tasting you’ll never forget, enquire with us about booking a private experience at The Lodge atop Moon Mountain.
  4. Quivira Vineyards: Embraced by the quietude of Dry Creek Valley, Quivira Vineyards offers a peaceful refuge. The estate’s rustic elegance and commitment to biodynamic practices create a welcoming ambiance to savor their exceptional wines amidst the rich colors of fall. Have a sweet tooth? Peruse and enjoy their organic estate fruit jams, available seasonally.
  5. Hill Family Estate: After a leisurely lunch at the renowned nearby Bouchon Bistro, Hill Family Estate beckons. The intimate tasting room exudes a welcoming atmosphere, inviting you to savor their superb wines while surrounded by the changing leaves and the gentle embrace of the hills. For the astute visitor, a conversation with one of the Hill family may reveal stories of their favorite family recipes, which occasionally find their way into private tastings
