Napa Valley Wineries

Napa Valley is wine country: it has more than three hundred wineries which grow many different grape varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel, and other admired varietals. The sight of Napa Valley, particularly Napa wineries, is mesmerizing: you can see the purple grapes among the red leaves while savoring a meticulously well-balanced wine.

The Napa Valley wineries produce wines which are delicately prepared and aged gracefully to suit a variety of palates. It is difficult to find even a single Napa winery that is owned by someone who is not passionate about the wine or the vineyards; the result is wine that satisfies both the mind and heart.

Each of the Napa Valley wineries is unique and offers distinct wines which express the individuality and depth of character of each varietal. One such Napa winery is the Hill Family Estate Winery, which has been in the business of producing wines for over twenty-five years. This Napa winery has won various accolades and awards over the years and firmly believes that crafting exceptional wine requires an unyielding commitment from the vineyard to the cellar.

Napa Valley wineries offer a chance to indulge in the experience of wine-making and tasting through vineyards tours. Many Napa wineries offer wine tasting tours to visitors of the vineyards. One Napa winery that offers wine tasting tours on the legendary Silverado Trail is the Reynolds Family Winery. This Napa winery produces expressive wines that are representative of their appellation. In these tours visitors are offered barrel tasting, reserve tastings paired with cheese, and use of picnic grounds. If you are interested in learning how to provide such tours, there are many wine related jobs available throughout the Napa Valley.

Napa Valley wineries offer many world-class wines. The wines produced in the valley are blended to perfection, with ripe fruit flavor balanced with natural acidity and aged to perfection. Among the wines offered by Napa wineries, one of the celebrated wines is Cabernet Sauvignon, with its rich and dark fruit flavors. One can enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon with steak, lamb, and duck dishes. Napa wineries also offer the rich Merlot that is full of dark macerated fruit with a long seductive finish. This delicious wine is crafted to enjoy around the fireplace with sheer self-indulgence and pairs well with chicken and lamb dishes.

Another pleasurable wine from Napa Valley wineries is Sauvignon Blanc; this wine has bright natural acidity with fresh flavors. The wine feels fresh in the mouth due to its complexity and its crisp, dry, and refreshing taste. Sauvignon Blanc tastes best when served slightly chilled, and pairs well with fish or cheese.

Napa Valley offers visitors the unique experience of enjoying wines while looking out at the beautiful valley and visiting wineries through the wine train. Riding the wine train is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in which one can visit the restaurant that is housed on top of an antique train that runs for twenty-five miles in the heart of Napa Valley. Here one can enjoy gourmet delights while sipping the luxurious wines from the valley.

Napa Valley wineries can be explored through the truly unique experience of the wine train; the wine train's winery tour packages offer a relaxing journey alongside beautiful vineyards of world-famous Napa wineries. Tourists can then disembark and participate in private tours and wine tastings.
