Our 2017 Favorite Picnic Spots

Skyline Park, Napa

This 850-acre park boasts an archery range, disc golf course, campsites, and over 25 miles of trails to choose from. The easiest and most rewarding hike is Lake Marie Road , which ends at - you guessed it- Lake Marie!  It's a sweet spot for a rustic picnic to reward yourself for a hike well done.

Gunlach Bundschu Winery, Sonoma

This family-owned winery with a great story is just five minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza, at the foot of the Mayacamas Mountains.  As well as wine tasting experiences, they allow picnics in their Picnic Arbor and on Towle's Hillside.  All tables are first come, first served, but if you have more than 8 in your group you can make reservations.

Robert Lewis Stevenson Park, Calistoga

A short 1.5-mile hike leads you to a gorgeous outlook overlooking upper Napa valley, or go all the way to the top of the summit for a real challenge!  Either way, you will work up an appetite for your picnic lunch, and this is a wonderful place to rest and relax.  Make sure to pack your camera!

Bartholomew Park Winery, Sonoma

Bartholomew Park Winery sits in the heart of the 400-acre Bartholomew Memorial Park in Sonoma.  A visit to the winery includes a sampling of their wines, access to vineyard-view picnic grounds, hiking trails, and a museum chronicling the property’s illustrious history and current grape growing practices.  Beauty, history, food, & wine - this park hits all the stops!

Quarryhill Botanical Gardens, Glen Ellen

This hidden gem features one of the largest collections of documented, wild-collected Asian plants in the world.  For a small fee, you can gain entrance to these gardens and over two miles of ambling trails, peppered with ponds and waterfalls.  Picnic tables are available both outside and along the trail for your ease and enjoyment of the spectacular surroundings.
