People have long come to Napa Valley for the exquisite food and wine, as well as the romantic ambiance of this scenic vineyard-rich valley.

Blending Fine Napa Valley Art With Wine
While art and wine individually are fantastic components of Napa Valley, combining the two into a single experience is perhaps the best of both worlds. Many of the finest regional wineries offer guests a glimpse into the wonderful world of Napa Valley art, in addition to offering a taste of the region’s prized wines. For example, head to Artesa, where you’ll find Artist in Residence Gordon Huether, who has been exhibiting his work at Artesa since 1992. A little further down the road at the historic Hess Collection Winery, you’ll be treated to Donald Hess’ extensive private contemporary Art Museum collection. Then end your day at the popular Robert Mondavi Winery, which features a permanent art collection, in addition to rotating exhibits celebrating local and emerging artists in photography, sculpture, painting, and other visual arts.
Traveling around from tasting to tasting at local wineries is not the only fun and interesting thing to do while in Napa Valley, especially for art lovers.
