Napa Valley Wineries

While planning your first trip to Napa it is best to research the wineries prior to visiting. There are hundreds of wineries to choose from, so this seems like an impossible task. We all had friends who made suggestions based on their favorite wineries in the area, and as you would guess, they all had different favorites! We pooled together a list of the wineries and looked into details. Based on a narrowed down list from various friends we came up with a list. We made several reservations in advance (some as early as 10am!). Below is a table with the website links and lots of notes that may help you decide on where you want to visit! An asterisk indicated the places that we visited. Take a look below and read the Napa Valley blog post for more information!
