Napa Valley wines are the best
It seems like every state in the nation boasts of having its own vineyards and wineries these days. While it’s true that the grape will grow in all sorts of place, some places still produce better wine grapes than others, and it’s hard to beat Napa Valley wines in terms of quality. The Napa Valley’s topography offers a wide range of potential growing areas, from fields of rich volcanic soil to rugged mountainsides.
Discerning tasters can detect the differences imparted by different parts of the valley. Marine layer fog from San Francisco Bay often covers the valley Valley at night and during the morning in late summer and early fall. This means nights on the mountains are warmer than in the valleys. The grapes continue to ripen in the dark, resulting in less sugar and more tannins. So the grapes grown on the valley floor are brighter and more ripe, while mountain grapes are darker, with more acidity and tannins. The soil on the mountain slopes tends to be less fertile, which stresses the vines and produces smaller vintages of greater quality.
