Napa Valley is one of the smallest winegrowing regions in the world, at just 4% of California’s wine grape harvest, but has a world-class reputation for outstanding wine and gracious hospitality. Located a little more than an hour north of San Francisco, the Napa Valley is only 35 miles long and five miles at its widest, making it easy to access from one base.
Explore the small towns of the region, each with its own personality, Michelin-star dining, boutique shopping, and local arts community. A range of world-class lodging options are available, from five-star luxury resorts to cozy and contemporary inns and B&Bs.
Napa Valley Insider’s Secret Tip… Cabernet Season!
From late fall through April, when harvest is complete and the new wines are barrel aging in caves and cellars, it’s officially Cabernet Season in the Napa Valley. It’s a time to slow the pace and revel in the surrounding natural beauty. Local chefs cook heartier dishes that pair magically with the Napa Valley’s famed Cabernet Sauvignon and other world-class red wines, vintners and wine growers enjoy a break in the agricultural cycle, and a variety of signature events showcase all that makes the Napa Valley legendary – wine, food, arts and wellness.
