Napa Valley grapes
In a tradition well over a century old, vineyard workers are harvesting the grapes that Napa Valley wines come from. Napa Valley wines come in many varieties — red, white, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel — depending on what grapes they come from and where they were planted. Every part of the valley has a subtly different combination of sunshine, rain, mist, soil moisture and soil composition. To make a great Napa Valley wine, the vineyard tries to find the right kind of grape for each terroir.
If you’re planning to visit a winery in Napa Valley, see if it has a wine club. Joining this club will let you save money on tasting fees and the wines you buy from the club. Many wine clubs offer different selections of wines, as well as collections of wine — the highest-rated wines, or all-Napa Valley wines, or all one particular kind of wine.
