Sonoma, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Mendocino. They all make world-class wine. But, in 1976 at an international blind wine tasting, Napa Valley’s wines beat France’s best, winning both the red and white tasting. Other California wines made the top five. It was official. Napa became known as the home of world-class premium wine.
And because of those awards, the top chefs, healthy indulgence, and extraordinary architecture flourish in the Napa Valley. Set among some of the earth’s nicest hills and valleys, soft buttered light, and a rowdy history, anyone who loves food, wine, and natural beauty will find a slice of paradise in Napa.
If you’ve toured Napa Valley, it may be time to come back. If you haven’t experienced Napa yet, what wonders await you. In Authentic Wine Country, it’s all about the joy!
