Travel Guide

Napa showing tranquil scenes, farmland and a sunset

Taste some of the world’s best wines in California’s unofficial wine capital, a city synonymous with grape growing and rolling green hills.

Sip your way through Napa, the county seat of Napa County, California, and its largest city. Known primarily for its fantastic vineyards, the city also offers numerous cultural attractions and other things to see and do.

Explore Napa’s famous vineyards. It’s hard to find one that you won’t like, but Judd’s Hill Winery and Microcrush, Artesa Vineyards and Winery, O’Brien Estate Winery and Domaine Carneros are among the most popular. Tour rolling vineyards, try stomping grapes with your feet and taste some of the world’s favorite wines.

At Hess Collection, discover art and wine under one roof. Go on a tour of the vineyard and taste its acclaimed cabernet sauvignon. Explore the Hess Art Collection , which gives you a peek into the world-class modern art collection of Donald Hess.

See more fantastic art at di Rosa. The non-profit contemporary art center focuses on di Rosa Northern California artists. See pieces by Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Jay DeFeo and other Bay Area talent. The long gallery building, which resembles a modern barn and is surrounded by rolling hills, is almost as unique as the art inside.

For a first-hand look into the winemaking process, visit Seguin Moreau Napa Cooperage. See highly skilled barrel makers, known as coopers, hard at work creating the oak barrels that hold some of the region’s famous wines.

Attend an event at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater. Varied talents grace its stage, from the Symphony Napa Valley to touring dance companies, musicians and even comedians. Enjoy a performance at the Napa Valley Opera House, which stages opera and other events throughout the year.

Find Napa at the southern end of Napa Valley, 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of San Francisco. Its peak tourist season, August through October, corresponds with the region's harvest. If you visit during this time, expect exceptional wines but higher prices for purchases and accommodations.

We hired bikes and enjoyed cycling to three vineyards, where the pick of the bunch was Halls (slightly further up the valley). Overall one of our favourite parts of our trip to California
