Napa valley is a town located in the State of California, USA. Napa County, once the producer of many different crops, is known today for its regional wine industry, rising to the first rank of wine regions with France. Lovers of nature can speed along a well-worn mountain trail on the seat of a bicycle or go hiking; foodies can discover perfectly smoked charcuterie or wedges of handcrafted cheese; enthusiasts of music, film, and art can find events, large and small, scattered throughout the region. Or, revel in more wine with a guided, wine tasting tour.
Frog’s Leap Winery
This country farm meets vineyard is the perfect place to enjoy great wine and company without the stuffiness sometimes found at wineries. Some say this winery offers the most relaxed and enjoyable tour-tasting in Napa Valley. Tour guides lead you through the fruit and vegetable gardens, the fermentation room, barrel room and the gorgeous farmhouse. Recent guests love leisurely savoring their wine while gazing at the gardens and Mayacamas Mountains from rocking chairs on the farmhouse porch.
Castello di Amorosa Winery
Most wineries are a bore for children. Some don’t even allow them to enter in the first place. But that’s not the case at the Castello di Amorosa Winery. This time-warped 13th-century Tuscan castle mystifies visitors of all ages. Visitors describe Castello di Amorosa as a real-life fairy tale with the added bonus of incredible wine. Many also recommend the guided tour and tasting — instead of just the general admission — for the educational tour guides who do a great job at explaining how to properly taste wine.
Di Rosa Gallery
Some call it Napa’s hidden gem or best-kept secret, others might call it a beautiful assortment of the bizarre. But di Rosa is truly an outdoor sculpture garden in California wine country. More than 2,000 works from more than 800 artists are scattered across 217 gorgeous acres and inside di Rosa’s Gatehouse Gallery. And even if you’re not into art, you’ll still enjoy strolling the premises and the beautiful scenery.
Napa Valley Wine Train
The Napa Valley Wine Train is by and far one of Napa Valley’s most interesting and convenient attractions for visitors. The train not only offers car-less visitors the opportunity to zip through 36 miles of scenic, vineyard-lined terrain, but it also acts as a restaurant, serving up gourmet meals paired with some of Napa’s signature wine selections. The Napa Valley Wine Train offers loads of tours that range from just a ride on the train to a full day trip with stops at multiple vineyards. There’s also a twilight tour and even a “Murder On the Orient Express”-inspired Murder Mystery dinner theatre package.
