Napa Valley Holidays

Vineyards reminiscent of Tuscany

Lush, green, vine-covered hills reminiscent of Tuscany, the sweet, earthy smell of grapes, the tannin-rich taste of wine with its cool, silky texture - Napa Valley is a sensory experience.

With more than 400 wineries thriving on diverse soils and microclimates, it is no surprise the region attracts almost as many visitors as Disneyland. We love sipping a finely aged cabernet while Venetian chandeliers cast a warm glow across Italian marble-lined cave walls in Del Dotto Vineyards' historic wine cave.

Most of the regions wineries are family-owned and operated, so you can often meet the wine maker, but we suggest you schedule your visits to these wineries in advance to avoid disappointment as popular wineries book up in advance and the smaller ones need to know you are coming so that someone is there to greet you. Napa Valley is not just about the wine; there are more delicious tastings on offer too, from micro brewed beers to artisan cheeses and olive oil. 

Why not see more during one trip? Combine Napa Valley with Yosemite National Park, or head to San Francisco for some city excitement.
