Napa Valley on a budget

Napa Valley on a Budget
free coupons, discounts and tips

Let's face it - visiting Napa Valley can be very expensive. These days it's not unusual for wineries to charge $15, $20, or even $30 per person to taste their wines. But don't worry, there is a way you can visit Napa without breaking the bank. That's right, you CAN do Napa on a Budget as long as you pay attention to who has two-for-one coupons and deals and plan your day around them.

For the past ten years I've been serving up the most complete list of FREE winetasing coupons in Napa and Sonoma with absolutely no catch and no tricks. Today and are still the only places you can go to get every free Two for One wine tasting offer without making you jump through hoops. Never pay full price for wine tastings again!

FREE NAPA COUPONS, SPRING 2015- Free Winetastings Below!

Here's all you need for FREE Napa wine coupons.

GET A PRIORITY WINE PASS: I used to print a ton of coupons but lately I've been using the Priority Wine Pass, a cool little card that gets you free tastings as well as special VIP treatment. Flash the card, get free wine, way cooler than searching for a crumpled coupon in your back pocket.

Tip: I like the card so much I got the owner to offer my readers a discount. Use Promo Code "localwally" when ordering the Wine Pass to get the card for only $40, normally $125. And if you're short on time, ask for a temporary card you can print immediately from home until the plastic card arrives.

The card is good for both Napa and Sonoma, good for a year and pays for itself within the first hour so I recommend you get the card and go have fun. Don't go to Napa without it!
