Kid Friendly Wineries in Napa Valley and Sonoma Areas

Are you interested in getaway to Wine County but not sure where to go now that you have a kid? Here is a list of kid-friendly Napa and Sonoma wineries and restaurants.

1. Sattui Winery
Sattui Winery is located in the heart of Napa Valley, St. Helena. The winery has a large open area with giant oaks, walnut trees, and beautiful gardens for you kids to run off a little pent-up energy. They have picnic grounds where you can enjoy lunch outside. On the weekend (from 11:30am to 3:30pm), they have a barbecue that serves wood-fired pizzas, Italian sausages, grilled bread, and basil. There are also events for visitors such as a Lobster Festival, Fiesta Italiana, Harvest Ball, and more. If you and your family is hungry, but you missed the barbecue, you should try out the Italian marketplace and deli.

2. Castello Di Amorosa
Castello Di Amorosa is one of the most gorgeous wineries in the Napa Valley. It has a beautiful panoramic view and a full size fortress with dungeon. Castello Di Amorosa castle was inspired by 13th century Tuscan castle. Geek and I had fun exploring the castle and your kids will too. Even the bathrooms are decked out in renaissance style. There are also many animals on the premises including chickens, sheep , emus, and peacocks. Some of them roam the grounds interacting with guests at random. In addition to tours your children might enjoy, Castello Di Amorosa has many events that are child-appropriate including concerts, the Midsummer Medieval Festival, the Chocolate Festival, and many charity events.

The Benziger Family Winery is located in the charming Sonoma County town, Glen Ellen. It is a certified, organic winery with a very beautiful landscape. Some people say that it reminds Disneyland.
