The jewel of California, the Napa Valley is world-renowned for the superb quality of wines it produces. Cabernet Sauvignon takes centre stage, with top names including Per Us, Screaming Eagle and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars producing some of the most highly sought after reds from the most premium terroirs in Napa. For world-renowned Bordeaux style blends from the Napa Valley, turn to the leading lights of Opus One and Dominus to name but a few.
Beautiful expressions of the Syrah variety are not to be missed, from profound and complex to boutique-style examples where Syrah is co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier and Mourvèdre to make superbly fresh and sumptuous wines. For whites, Chardonnay is the key variety from historic Chateau Montelena of Judgement of Paris fame, to the complex and magnificently age-worthy examples produced by Aubert Wines. No cellar is complete without a bottle or two from this magnificent AVA!
