Plan the Ultimate Romantic Weekend in Napa Valley

|
By Courtney Cochran

I know it sounds clichéd: guy meets girl, guy decides he likes girl, guy decides to whisk girl away for an über romantic weekend in - surprise!! - wine country.

Ok, so jetting off to wine country isn't the most original idea to occur to love-struck gents (and lasses) with romance on the brain.

Now that we've got that out there, I'd like to remind everyone of two very important supporting pieces of information: a) wine country, no matter how many times you've been, is simply one of the most romantic places on earth, and b) there are about as many romantic spots and activities in wine country as there are wineries in Napa Valley (a lot!), which means you can make your trip - and your romance - seem new every time you go.
