Napa County is one of the main wine growing regions in the US, and one of the major wine regions of the world. It is the Bay Area's northernmost county, featuring quaint, wine- and food-focused towns, beautiful views of rolling vineyards and gourmet farm-to-table restaurants.
More than 400 wineries dot Napa Valley's Silverado trail, producing critically acclaimed Chardonnays and the region's famed Cabernet Sauvignon. The thriving wine industry has made Napa County a destination for tourism. The region offers lavish resorts, charming bed & breakfasts, and Michelin starred restaurants from Thomas Keller's famed French Laundry to St. Helena's Terra Restaurant. In the city of Napa, Oxbow Public Market features regional gourmet food, grown by the farmers who tend Napa County's vast agricultural land. Each year, Napa hosts the Napa Valley Film Festival, highlighting independent filmmakers, and BottleRock, a multi-day music festival that draws nationally recognized bands.
