Napa Valley is America's top wine region, now considered one of the world's greatest. Making the rounds of Napa tasting rooms has long been a must-do for North American luxury travelers.
But Napa Valley is not a "do it and cross it off your list" kind of place. Visitors find themselves wanting to return to again and again.
Napa Valley does everything well, and you can't get enough. Of its magnificent landscapes. Its exquisite restaurants and world-class wines. Its lovely resorts and its Festival del Sole every July.
All this, less than an hour from San Francisco.
