It’s Wine O’clock! Trip to Napa Valley, California

If  you are a wine lover (like me) a trip to Napa Valley is a must do. It is the ultimate experience in wine tasting and making. Ever since I started appreciating wine, I have wanted to visit Napa Valley. It is home to more than four hundred wineries. Some of the most popular wine offerings include – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon. No matter your preference, there is always a wine for you at Napa Valley. 

The wine here is spectacular in so many ways. It can be quite overwhelming to choose where to go, so therefore, depending on your wine preference (red, white, sparkling, sweet) just pick up the top winery. It is amazing to see the production of the wine from the early stages of grape growing, to fermentation and bottling. In Napa, you will see some of the most stylish tasting rooms with gorgeous views, making the whole experience magical.   Now the thing about wine is, you need to pair it up with the right food, there are plenty of delicious restaurants to appease any culinary palate.

How to get here? Assuming you are coming from San Francisco, it is an easy 1.5 hour drive. You could rent a car or there are bus tours too. 

Travel Tip – It’s a good idea to have a designated driver or some other transportation (not a self drive). You don’t want to be driving around after all the wine tastings. Weekend stay highly recommended.
