Welcome to Napa County
Napa County is world famous and boasts some of the most superb varietals in the wine community. Located northeast of San Francisco, this small but rich county is home to over 400 wine labels! Napa has made a name for itself due to its wine, food, and culture. Rising in the 1960s to the first rank of wine regions with France, Italy, and Spain, Napa County's wineries put Northern California on the map! According to the Napa Valley Vintners, in 1968, the community had the forethought to preserve open space and prevent future over-development of 30,000 acres by enacting the nation's first Agriculture Preserve. Since its adoption, not one acre of land has been removed from the Preserve. Something visitors may not realize is that 95% of Napa Valley's wineries are family owned. This all plays a large part in that quaint, home-town feel that Napa County exudes to its guests.
Napa County can also be celebrated for its environment. Go outside and smell the fragrant eucalyptus, lavender, and rosemary that grow abundantly in the area; hear the birds sing; see the colorful palette of diverse plant life, mountain ranges, and blue sky; and of course, taste the various fine wines and gourmet food that have made this valley famous. Hot air ballooning is one of the many popular outdoor activities. Picture stepping into a hot air balloon and soaring like a red-tailed hawk, floating almost silently above the trees and fields, vineyards and orchards! Want to stay closer to ground? Keep guests active in nature, and let them truly experience Napa with all their senses as they bicycle on a personalized tour. Visit exclusive wineries and enjoy a private table tasting with an educated guide! While leisurely tasting the wines in a private room, they'll discover the subtle nuances of winemaking. Up for more of an adventure? Send guests out on a hiking tour through Skyline Park, located in the Southern part of Napa to explore the great outdoors. The hiking trail boasts views of the Carneros regions and the lower Napa valley. Along the way guests will experience the beauty of the wildflowers, oak trees and Madrone trees. Tee-off any day of the year in the beautiful and exquisite Napa Valley! Greens and fairways are in excellent condition year round, with lots of sunshine and pleasantly mild temperatures no matter what the season. Courses are found on the hills overlooking the vineyards, in scenic parks, and the lush valleys. Animal and nature lovers will definitely want to consider a leisurely horseback ride during their stay in the Wine Country. Explore the delights of Skyline Wilderness Park on gentle and exceptionally cared for horses.
