25 Aug Wineries You Must See In Napa Valley
We’ve all enjoyed the lovely feeling of arriving at a winery and see the lush vineyards stretching out over scenic rolling hills. Walking around the vineyard grounds with a glass of wine in hand, soaking up the sun while learning about winemaking, is a nice way to spend an afternoon. But Napa Valley brings the experience to a whole new level with refined, sophisticated, and innovative wineries beyond what you might have seen before.
Let’s take a moment to look at some of the wineries you must see in Napa Valley.
Hall Street Helena is a 33-acre property at the base of the Mayacama Mountains. Learn about the history of the property, featured artwork and taste four wines during the HALLmark tour. Or indulge in The Ultimate Cabernet Experience, which comes with cheeses and information on winemaking techniques. This winery turns on all the charm for wine lovers visiting Napa Valley.
The romantic surroundings and ancient English castle are the perfect spot for a winery. The family-owned Chateau Montelena Winery is well-known for producing quality cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay, and the gorgeous grounds which include a Chinese garden and scenic lake are dreamy.
Robert Mondavi Winery was established in 1966 and produces world-class wines from To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley. Mondavi passed away in 2008, aged 94, but his vision lives on with visitors being treated to art, food and wine experiences in an elegant and natural setting. This winery is a true gem in the impressive collection of fine wineries in Napa Valley.
V Sattui Winery is a lovely choice with old-world charm and excellent service. Serving up over 80 kinds of wines, champagne and ports, there is a tipple for everyone. Take a winery and barrel tasting tours and enjoy a lunch laden with wine, bread and cheeses. The award-winning winery is open all year round.
Inglenook Winery can’t be missed on your blissful vacation winery trail. Founded in 1879 by a Finnish sea captain who loved wine, this is one of the oldest wineries in Napa Valley. The grounds are stunning and tours are in demand, so be sure to make a booking in advance. The winery has changed owners and names many times, but Francis Ford Coppola’s current owner reinstated the original name when he purchased the business in 2011.
