Storybook castles...panoramic mountain views...
lavender fields...nectar of the vine...
...imagining Europe? Not a chance! You're about to discover Napa Valley, California!
Nestled between mountain ranges, the heart of Wine Country is blessed with a rich blend of fertile soil, warm sunshine and cool, misty bay breezes, rivaling the best grape-growing regions anywhere.
California's agricultural gold mine also happens to offer an abundance of awe-inspiring views, luxurious lodgings, pampering spas and sumptuous dining, making every day a celebration.
Whether you've dreamed about going -- or you already know this beautiful wine region -- you can experience all its wonders right here.
This is America's most famous wine region. Stretching a mere 30 miles long, the valley boasts more than 400 wineries, some over a century old.
New boutique wine producers are popping up in this busy region, too, and for good reason. The sunny, temperate climate shines through in the lavish complexity of the wines, making Napa Valley the home of world-class cabernets and merlots. The cooler, southern tip of Napa provides the ideal spot for chardonnays and pinot noirs. Of course, there's more...but we'll get to those later.
I imagine you're wondering who's behind this site. I'm not a sommelier -- or a travel agent -- just someone with an appreciation for good wine, scrumptious food, and the breathtaking scenery to savor it all.
My passion for this spectacular wine region has led me on winery tours and tastings. I've learned a great deal about California wines, and discovered my favorite places to visit. I'd like to help you explore Napa Valley in hopes you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
