About the Napa Valley Region
The Napa Valley is bounded by the Mayacamas Mountains to the west and by the Vaca Mountains to the east and is about 35 miles north of San Francisco. In many wine regions, there can be a significance quality variance from winery to winery, but it takes considerable effort to find a Napa Valley winery not making excellent wine. The valley includes the city of Napa at the southern end and the city of St. Helena at the northern end. The Napa climate is influenced by elevation and distance from San Pablo Bay. During the day, valley floor vineyards reach higher temperatures than do higher elevation vineyards, and temperature tends to increase as you move further away from San Pablo Bay. Night temperatures are higher in mountain vineyards than they are in valley floor vineyards. These different climates, and soils, can create nuances in the resultant wines produced by Napa wineries that are the focus of countless discussions and debates among Napa wine enthusiasts. Napa is California’s most developed and visited wine area with over 700 wineries, about half of which are open for tasting. Napa wineries make between 200 and 5,000,000 cases with the average somewhere around 7,000 cases.
