About Napa Valley Wines

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 AVA, 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.
