My oenophile heart loves everything about wine, so of course a visit to Napa Valley always tops my to-do list whenever visiting California!

No matter if you’re a wine novice or expert drinker, Napa Valley is one of the best wine country getaways in the world!

Founded in 1973 by Moet & Chandon, Domaine Chandon was the first French owned sparking winery in the United States.

Founded in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has seven unique estate vineyards producing quality California grown grapes.

A tasting (advanced reservations only) in their stunning tasting room or cozy wrap-around porch will have you relaxed and cheerful with the surrounding beauty of their vineyards.

As always, drink responsibly and designate a driver! You can also hire a private driver, rent a bus or take the Napa Valley Wine Train.

Tips for Wine Tasting in Napa Valley:

Pace yourself! (even a wine tasting pro like myself has to take a few breaks from tastings, it can be heartbreaking, but your liver will thank you later!)
