Region Hierarchy
  • Napa Valley wine region

    Napa Valley, an hour's drive north of San Francisco, California, is the most famous and prestigious wine region anywhere in the New World.

The classic 'Napa Cab', the archetypal Napa Valley wine, is a rich, oak-aged red with aromas of blackcurrant, boysenberry, liquorice, vanilla and smoky, bittersweet chocolate.

The scenic 40-minute drive between the Napa and Calistoga townships passes through some of the most valuable viticultural real estate on Earth.
