Napa Valley stands tall among the most illustrious and revered of the world’s great wine regions. It is famed for its majestic Cabernet Sauvignons, but this is only a fraction of the story. While comparisons with Bordeaux are common, Napa is less than 15% the size of its French peer: just 30 miles north to south and 5 miles across at its widest point. It boasts some of the most complex terroir globally, with almost half of the know soils orders present throughout the AVA, from the imposing Vaca Mountains in the east and Mayacamas Mountains bordering Sonoma to the west, to the alluvial Valley floor. More akin to Burgundy for its complex patchwork of famed vineyards and Estates, Napa is home to a stunning array of styles and varietals. With Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Merlot flourishing in the cooler-climate in the south, to myriad expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon produced anywhere from sea level to 600+ metres above sea level, Napa Valley is a wine lover’s paradise. With a new guard of young winemakers and Estates leading the way, there has never been a more exciting time to experience the greatness of Napa.
