In the valley there are many Napa attractions, such as: antiquing, wine tasting & tours, bikes & hikes…breweries and distillers too. One can do the simple tasting or add the food pairing to enhance the tasting experience. To raise the tasting experience to the next level- a tour of the winery with a guide or even better with the owner/winemaker…really makes the adventure over the top.
People come to the wine country for the first time and several hundred visitors return to the Wine Country, who were smitten by that first impression, now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the wonderful things to do in the area. On each visit, there is more to see and do. In recent years, Napa has become a hub for world-renowned chefs, wineries and hotels too.
Now, one can taste local produced beer such at Downtown Joes, Napa Smith and Carneros Brewery each with a unique style of using local water, hops, malt, sugar and yeast to create some outstanding beer.
Charbay Distillery and Winery opened a few years ago…which combines the best of whiskey, brandy, rum, grappa, tequila, vokda…and wine too !
