Napa Valley

Located in Northern California, the Napa Valley is only 30 miles long and less than five miles wide at its widest point. Only grapes grown in the appellation, or any of its 16 sub-appellations, can be labeled Napa Valley wines. The region is defined by its dry Mediterranean climate, mountain ranges and proximity to the Pacific Ocean. It is known for producing a wide range of innovative, quality-driven wines. The region’s varying topography includes flat valley floor; low, sloping alluvial fans; narrow, linear valleys; steep mountain slopes and ridges; and high plateaus. The area contains 33 soil series with more than 100 soil variations – half of the soil orders that exist within the world can be found in the Napa Valley.
