Sometimes, you just want to get away from it all and anywhere that isn’t home will do. Other times, you want to indulge yourself in a little bit of luxury and the best the world has to offer. When you’re a wine connoisseur, the latter usually means heading off to Napa for a few wine tastings, a tour, and maybe a stay in a cozy hotel room right in the heart of wine country.

But here’s the thing: no two wineries are exactly the same, nor are any two experiences at the Valley’s best locations. See this selection of top premium destinations to find the best wine and the best times, too.

Stags’ Leap Winery

Stags’ Leap Winery makes some of the best wine in the valley, but we’re recommending this location for the sheer experience of visiting, too. It’s located down a long, winding tree-lined private road at the edge of the pacific palisades in Napa’s Stags Leap District, making it the perfect place for photos. The main building looks like a nineteenth-century c

Best Wines for the Summer

Summer is a time for grilled foods, late nights and socializing with friends and family. Many people agree that wine is always part of a great night, but you may be wondering what types of wines are best to pair with foods hot off the grill. It’s a good thing that there are many choices available that are both refreshing and satisfying, even on a hot summer’s day.

Here are some of our favorite picks for wines in the summer.

Riesling

Riesling has a nice, light taste. Its sweet lemon chiffon and cherry flavors give it the right balance for meat and vegetables cooked on the grill.

Sauvignon Blanc

This wine selection includes lime, herb and tropical flavors that flow well together. It’s a great option when eating fish, meat or grilled veggies. You can also pair it with samples of cheese, which is a nice touch at a barbecue or pool party.

Chardonnay

Most people enjoy a good glass of chardonnay, and this wine selection is really brought to life when paired with seafood and creamy cole

Wine Tasting Dos and Don'ts

If you’ve just planned an upcoming wine tasting, you may not be sure what to do. The idea may seem clear - you show up at a winery, sample various wines and mingle with others - but you may find yourself wondering about wine tasting etiquette as the date inches closer. Don’t worry, we have the dos and don’ts of wine tastings that will get you through your first of many wine tours.

Reservations

In Napa Valley, the majority of wineries are open to the public, seven days a week. Still, it’s a good idea to call ahead and make sure that the winery can accommodate you during your stay, as some wineries are only open on the weekends or have limited hours. Wineries may also have rules about bringing along kids, large groups or limousines and tour buses.

Clothing

Dressing casual yet sophisticated is best for winery tours. You want to be comfortable, as you’ll be walking around and probably going to several wineries in a day. But, you also want to look nice, as this is showing respect
