29 Mar Making the Most of a Day in Napa
Why Take a Private Tour to Wine Country?
California’s renowned Napa Valley is sun-drenched landscape of vibrant colors and oak-dotted rolling hills, an iconic enclave that is home to a plethora of legendary wine estates perching like castles amongst climbing fields of vines. This idyllic region is home to over four hundred wineries, 95% of which are family owned and/or operated and most of which welcome visitors for touring and tasting. In addition to being a mecca for wine enthusiasts, the Napa Valley also boasts exceptional farm-to-table cuisine as well as boutique shopping in charming towns such as Napa and Yountville. At only 70 miles from San Francisco, a wine tasting tour in the Napa region is an easy day trip, yet a world away from the city life. This bucolic yet glamorous countryside will delight your senses as you enjoy stunning scenery and unique experiences.
What Will A Napa Valley Tour Be Like?
A Napa Valley tour is about stepping out of your daily routine into another world, one filled with beauty and amazement. The Napa Valley contains the most world-acclaimed wineries within one region in North America, making it the perfect destination for a wine tasting tour. In addition to the sunny Mediterranean climate, the grapes also enjoy the soil, a product of the waters from San Pablo Bay in the south and volcanic activity in the north.
This is the land of grandiose wine pioneers and large-scale productions with big names such as Charles Krug- the first commercial winery and tasting room operation in California, Robert Mondavi- the first major winery built in Napa after prohibition and the first to emphasize wine education, and Beringer- the oldest continually operating winery in the region. You may also wish to venture off the beaten path to visit smaller producers and partake of inclusions such as tastings in a cave or meeting the winemaker.
