A quick guide to the wineries of Napa Valley
The Napa Valley in California has long been synonymous with superb wine and Napa wineries. Its warm Mediterranean climatemakes it one of the best places in the world to grow wine grapes. Its intricate topography offers a wide range of potential growing areas to choose between, from fields of rich volcanic soil to rugged mountainsides, each imparting a different set of qualities to the terroir of the grapes. There are also little microclimates with different average temperatures and levels of rainfall. That’s why there are 16 AVAs within the Napa Valley American Viticultural Area. For example, deep, rich, almost jammy red wines with firm tannins and distinct acidity come from the St. Helena area.
