10Best Shopping Stops in Napa Valley Wine Country

When you plan a trip to Napa Valley wine country, it makes sense to add in the costs of a few bottles of new favorite wines to make the trip home with you. But budgeting shouldn’t be exclusive to wine. Napa Valley’s chic shopping scene is worth checking a bag for and can come as a surprise to visitors who thought their only souvenirs would come with a cork and label. Expect the un-expected when it comes to shopping in wine country. Locally owned, one-of-a-kind boutiques line downtown stretches in popular spots like Napa and St. Helena. Oxbow Public Market is home to shops that sell everything from rare teas to custom spice blends and locally crafted chocolates. Rabbit Rabbit Fair Trade offers a colorful collection of artisan goods like jewelry, paper goods and home décor from around the world. At the Culinary Institute of America, you can take in the more than a thousand strong corkscrew collection, before shopping at the Spice Islands Marketplace for cookware, kitchen tools and cookbooks.

So save some time and room in your suitcase on your next trip to Napa Valley. You’ll need it, especially if you make it to any of our 10Best shopping spots.
