Napa Valley vineyards
Napa Valley, California
Wine

You'll find the major wineries that allow you to drop in without a reservation listed under "Food & Drink" in each of our Town sections.

Wine is what the Napa Valley is all about.

Of course the river, the creeks, the valley, and the beautiful hills came first, but then—after the wheat, the cows, the prunes and walnuts—came grapes. And then wine. And then food.

And now you.
