The Napa Valley is widely considered the most popular wine country destination in the United States. And no wonder, Napa Valley is brimming with rolling hills covered in vineyards planted year-round, picturesque wineries, and historic buildings. The Napa River meanders through the valley past farms, houses, and fields on its journey from Mt. Helena to the Pacific Ocean. Napa Valley scenery makes for a breathtaking drive, walk, or an enchanting hot air balloon ride.

The Napa Valley is 30 miles long and 5 miles wide, with over 45,000 acres of vineyards planted and 300 wineries. There are 15 smaller AVAs within the larger Napa Valley AVA, and 30 different types of soil, so there is plenty of diversity to be found in Napa. The Mediterranean climate, geography and geology merge together to create ideal growing potential for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel, and more. Napa Valley produces world renowned wine and is visited by up to 5 Million people each year.
