A culinary dream

Napa Valley is America's prime wine growing region
Besides wine you will find dairy farms and cheesemakers and lots of other produce
Touring vineyards and wineries is the thing to do, often combined with eating in one of the top class restaurants found here

Napa Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area is America's premier wine growing region. In the rolling hills of the California countryside, endless vineyards and hundreds of wineries produce some of the finest wines found anywhere in the world.

The fertile soil and moderate and sunny climate of Napa are of course not only ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. That much is made clear by the plentiful other types of nuts and fruits that are grown here. Add in the dairy farms and cheesemakers and it might dawn on you that we are looking at an area that isa bit of a culinary dream.

That idea is certainly not lost on the millions of visitors who make their way to the valley every year, passing by winery after winery for tastings while enjoying the sunny scenery and finishing off the day in one of the many fine restaurants that call this area home.

Summer is the busiest time at Napa Valley, and autumn may be an overall better time to visit. [Review by travelindicator]
