WHAT TUSCANY IS TO ITALY, NAPA VALLEY IS TO THE UNITED STATES—THIS SUN-SOAKED, GRAPEVINE RICH REGION IS KNOWN FOR WORLD-CLASS VINTAGES, FARM-TO-TABLE CUISINE AND NATURAL ABUNDANCE.

Just a head-clearing drive north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is Eden for those with a taste for life’s finer things. The charming town of St. Helena, buzzing with fine arts galleries, boutiques, wine tasting rooms and seasonal and New American-leaning restaurants, is set right in the heart of this verdant valley. Radiating out from town is mile after rolling mile of vineyard-trimmed road ideal for biking adventures or tasting experiences at over 400 wineries.
