Hues of Gold: Discover Mustard Season


The Experience

Vibrant mustard blooms blanket rows of vineyards from January to March throughout Napa Valley. An unexpected and delightful sight, the bright yellow flowers usher in a new growing season. To protect the soil and replenish it with nutrients, mustard is planted as a cover crop, attracting beneficial insects, preventing erosion, and warding off grapevine pests. With mild weather, hiking and biking trails, and birding in the wetlands, explore the beauty of mustard season.

  • Available January through March
