Don’t Miss: The wine! That’s why you came to Napa, right? Explore the wineries, vineyards and cellars that Napa’s famous for.
Our favorite stop is always Cakebread Cellars, a family-owned and operated Napa Valley gem. Not only does Cakebread produce delicious wines, they offer a truly unique tasting experience.
Each time I’ve visited, the tastings have been in a different location. Tastings are conducted in various venues around the winery. In the past, they’ve been held in barrel rooms, the fermentation room, alongside the vineyard and on their patio.
The surprise of the tasting experience, the delectable wines and the knowledgeable and friendly staff keep me coming back year after year.
