Package Details

Your Wine Country experience begins before you can say Merlot (or even check into your hotel). Platypus Tours meets you directly at the Candlelight Inn upon arrival and take you off the beaten path to the undiscovered gems of Napa Valley. While most tourists visit the same handful of wineries, Platypus takes you to wineries with real charm and a personal touch, so you can discover the more intimate side of the Napa Valley away from the crowds. Proving that bigger isn’t necessarily better, you will taste unique, world-class wines at beautiful locations.

After your truly unforgettable wine tour experience, return to the Candlelight Inn and your Deluxe Queen Room with fireplace. Relax in your room’s two-person Jacuzzi tub and enjoy the beautiful view of the Inn’s grounds from your balcony. If you’re only staying one night, check out in the morning, but not until you’ve savored your three-course breakfast. Then make your way to the Wine Train for your gourmet lunch journey. Or extend your stay to two nights, taking the day to explore the Napa Valley on your own before enjoying dinner into the twilight on the Wine Train, followed by sparkling wine in your room at the Candlelight Inn.

Candlelight Inn
Out of the ordinary and beyond expectations. One of the top Bed and Breakfasts in Napa, The Candlelight Inn is known for its impeccable attention to detail, always going above and beyond. And their artfully presented gourmet three-course breakfast, served fresh each morning. Close to Downtown Napa, at the gateway to the Los Carneros wine region, on the border between California’s most popular wine regions: Sonoma and Napa. Under the shade of a Redwood grove on a tributary of the Napa River, this beautiful property offers an acre of quiet, park-like grounds, manicured gardens, a gorgeous swimming pool, a welcoming atmosphere, and romantic ambiance.

Platypus Napa Wine Tour
Love wine, but aren’t a wine connoisseur? Platypus Tours offers the perfect tour for you. Expect a light-hearted, social, fun experience. Smaller, charming back road vineyards, historic wineries and family owned operations are Platypus’ specialty. They love to bring guests to hidden gem wineries, many of which guests have never even heard of. But will never forget.
