Top Five Napa Wineries to Pay a Visit

So, I’ve been a very busy bee this week. After learning all about google maps, I put all the knowledge and work into a little project. Below you will find five of the best Napa Valley Wineries to visit. It’s always been a dream of mine to visit Napa in California, and doing a little bit of research only excited me even more. These vineyards are so nice and I can’t even begin to think about how amazing the wine probably is. Each of these wineries offers a different and unique aspect that is simply Napa.

1. Beaulieu Vineyard

Sounds as fancy as it looks. Its one of the oldest vineyards in Napa, dating back to 1885. You can tour the vineyard, try some of the barrel stored wine and take a look in a room dedicated to the history of the vineyard. Great for any wine historian.

2. Black Stallion.

The name itself gives me chills. BS is all about grapes, grapes and more grapes. They have 17 different varieties and they are all up for analysis. They have a tasting room complete with yummy flatbread, and its only $20

3. Buehler Vineyards

This place is breathtaking. It is family owned and pretty affordable. The Buehler family does the private tours and tastings and will do anything to help out the visitors.

4. Cade Estate

This vineyard is a little different. It is fully sustainable and a LEED certified winery. And it’s in the heart of the mountains. They have a famous Sauvignon Blanc and the outdoor tables and chairs are perfect for an afternoon tasting.

5. Domaine Chandon

One of the only Napa wineries with a restaurant on site. The tasting lounge comes with special entrees that were specifically designed to accompany the Chandon sparkling wines. Yum.

I actually learned a lot by researching these beautiful vineyards and I feel like I actually have a handle on the whole google maps thing. It’s amazing what you can do with google maps. So, please feel free to take a look at my map, I promise its easy and fun. Print it out and take it with you on your next trip to California.
