When visiting Napa Valley, you’ll see a lot of people talking about taking a wine country tour. In fact, you may be taking one yourself! Wine tours are plenty of fun, and they can be enjoyed in groups or on a romantic one-on-one date. Let’s take a look at what you can expect on a wine tour so that you’re comfortable with this part of your stay.
