Napa Valley

First recognized at the Judgment of Paris in 1976, Napa Valley is one of the world’s most important fine wine regions. However, at only 45,342 acres (18,349 hectares), it’s a relatively small area, less than 15% the size of Bordeaux, and accounts for just 4% of California’s total wine production. Napa Valley was granted AVA, or American Viticultural Area, status in 1981, making it the first AVA in California and the 2nd in the U.S.

From Morimoto’s exquisite Asian fusion, to Thomas Keller’s Michelin-starred French Laundry and Tacos Michoacan’s casual roadside spice, you’ll find tasty cuisine around every corner.
