Spoil mom this Mother’s Day

Spoil mom this Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and while mom deserves to be spoiled every day of the year, you may be wondering how to make her feel extra special. Worry not, we have you covered! If you’re planning a trip to wine country this Mother’s Day weekend, these are four of our top choices for celebrating everything she does.



What’s wine country without the wine? The Culinary Institute of America at Copia is calling all wine-loving moms! Join them Saturday, May 12 at their downtown Napa location for a special Moms Who Make Wine tasting event. Enjoy a walk-around tasting where they will be pouring wines made by women and winemaking mothers. Cheers!

After a wine-filled Saturday, mom’s going to need a glamorous Mother’s Day brunch! Luckily, the Archer Hotel has just opened a dreamy rooftop bar and restaurant - Sky & Vine. Featuring the culinary magic of the acclaimed chef Charlie Palmer, Sky & Vine’s Bottomless Brunch includes everything from endless mimosas (or bloody Mary’s) to a freshly made donut wheel. Make your reservations now, you won’t regret it.



Sometimes mom just needs a day off and a little R&R. Lucky for you, The Napa River Inn is offering two special packages this Mother’s Day weekend! The first package, A Mother’s Day in Downtown Napa, includes an in-room bottle of wine, downtown wine tasting cards, and fresh pastries delivered daily. The second, A Mother’s Day Spa Day, includes all of the above, plus two therapeutic massages (hopefully you’re her +1).



If traditional gifts are not really for your mom, opt for the more adventurous plan! Napa Valley Bike Tours allows you to take off and ride through the vineyards on select routes not open to the public. They’ll provide the bike, a tour guide, water, and van support if you need it (for when you buy wine), and you can spend the day with mom visiting two wineries on a leisurely 10-mile ride.

It’s true, there is no gift that can show mom how much she means to us, but sometimes the best gift can simply be spending time together. Or, you can make her feel extra special with a personalized VinGardeValise wine suitcase so she can bring her wine home in style!

What’s your favorite way to spoil mom? We’d love to hear below!
