Every winter brings yellow mustard flowers to Napa Valley’s vineyards. Winter is a great time to visit Napa Valley as in addition to the mustard flowers, it’s uncrowded and the weather is cool.

In late winter, from somewhere in January through March, the vineyards of Napa Valley turn yellow with mustard flowers. The exact timing varies from year to year. This year, I journeyed up to Napa Valley in the first week of February and the mustards looked great.
