Wine Tasting in Napa Valley
The Napa Valley is the most famous wine region in the United States. The area is known for big red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and full-bodied whites like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many tasting rooms are restricted to appointment only tastings by the county; This isn’t an elite practice, but a county permit to limit the number of tastings per day.
Though Napa Valley is known for its highly rated and often expensive red wines, not all wineries are five-star. There are many tasting rooms that offer different flights for tasting, giving the taster an option to taste entry-level wines or the top tier. And there are plenty of casual tasting rooms where campers will be welcome.
