Napa Valley is the American capital of food and wine. Unveil the rich tradition and the specialties of family-owned and world-renowned wineries. Spend all day investigating some of the historical treasures such as the Christian Brothers Estate that is now home to the Culinary Institute of America, Beringer Vineyards, the oldest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley, the historic Inglenook chateau that is now home to Rubicon Estate or the Robert Mondavi Winery, undoubtedly a cornerstone in American winemaking.
You may find a more intimate wine experience by visiting the small and more personal wineries where the opportunity may present itself to talk with the winemaker or owner. The town of Calistoga with its medicinal waters is the home of numerous rejuvenating spas with all your favorite treatments. Visit the quaint towns of Oakville, Yountville and Rutherford that are filled with galleries where the arts reveal the expressions of local artists and restaurants where you can experience cuisine as only the nation's most celebrated chefs can prepare.
Investigate winemaking practices and enjoy the handcrafted wines of specific wine growing appellations such as Stags Leap District or Rutherford Bench where some of the most highly coveted Cabernet Sauvignons can be found. By touring a winery you can come to appreciate the delicate process involved in producing an exquisite sparkling wine.
Winery personnel can help you to grasp how a wine's color, texture, taste and aroma are exemplified in the teeth etching acidity of a steel fermented chardonnay or the velvety suppleness of a classic pinot noir. Immerse yourself in the world-class wines, fine dining, abundant cultural venues and enamoring beauty that define the region and contribute to the Napa Valley being synonymous with heaven on earth.
