NAPA VALLEY WINERY DIRECTORY

TOP NAPA VALLEY WINERIES

Napa Valley is a vibrant community with over 80,000 residents that is highly adored all around the world by travel/wine enthusiasts. Of the estimated four million people who visit our scenic area every year, it is thought that up to 80% visit the same 20 or so wineries in Napa. Since there are over 400 Napa wineries, it isn’t difficult to figure out how to avoid the crowds and find the more intimate side – and the real charm – of the Napa Valley. Our Napa Valley Join-In Tours focus on smaller, non-touristy Napa wineries featuring unique, world-class wines and beautiful locations and scenery, providing you with a truly special experience.

Over the past decade, the city of Napa has awakened with an incredible rush of culture, art, and entertainment, embodying the true spirit of the Valley. A thriving wine and culinary scene make Napa one of the most famous wine country regions in the world. The historical aspects of the region are evident through preserved Victorian-era architecture and Napa wineries that date back to the 1800s.

A few favorite locations in Downtown Napa include Oxbow Public Market, Main Street’s “Restaurant Row” filled with dining options, Napa’s Opera House, and many more small venues hosting live music and gatherings. Napa wineries have established tasting rooms right in the downtown so visitors can experience incredible wines while wandering the charming streets and walking along the riverfront. The town is also host to some incredible festivals, including BottleRock music festival, Festival Napa Valley and Napa Film Fest. What can you always expect at these events? Incredible food and famous wines from Napa Valley wineries.
