Downtown Napa is known for its world-class wine-tasting rooms, international culinary delights, and one-of-a-kind spots and activities. But did you know that it’s also a hub for mustard lovers? Every year in early spring, the valley comes to life with carpets of brilliant yellow wild mustard flowers lining the vineyards, and Downtown Napa gathers together to celebrate the season. This year’s Mustard Celebration Weekend (February 18-20) is an ideal time to visit and savor the culinary goodies this tangy and golden condiment offers while unwinding in one of Downtown Napa’s exclusive luxury hotels or hip B&Bs.
