October in the Napa Valley is perhaps the most beautiful time of year. The vibrant colors of the changing grape vines are breathtaking and the wineries of Napaare busy with the crush. Visitors from around the world plan their vacations to coincide with the marvelous tapestry of color that adorns the Wine Country in autumn.
In October, the average temperature in Calistoga is 62 degrees, with an average high of 79, and an average low of 46 degrees. The average rainfall in Calistoga for October is 2.1 inches.
Don’t be surprised if you experience an Indian summer during your October visit to Napa Valley. While the average high temperatures have cooled down from those in August, we usually have a period of very warm weather during the month. October is a perfect time to visit Castello di Amorosa as you will have beautiful views of the fall colors on your drive to see the castle.
Because the weather is almost ideal in October, and because the wine crush is in full swing, reservations for hotels are particularly difficult to come by if you wait until the last minute. We hope that you check out our affordable hotel rooms and make Calistoga your base for exploring Napa Valley.
