Napa Valley is a wine growing region located in the Napa County of the US State of California. At the time that California gained statehood in 1850, Napa was one of the original counties in the state. It was known for agriculture but today it is easily distinguished as the top wine producing region in the Americas. Listed below are Napa Valley's top Wineries that a wine lover must visit.

1. Beringer Vineyards

This is an award winning winery that offers wine sampling tours for $20 - $25. In a business where grandiose and un-assumed sense of class is the order of the day, you will be surprised at the service offered at the Beringer Vineyards. Indeed it is very rare to find a wine connoisseur who does not snob you.

2. Larkmead Wineries

The homey, cool and sophisticated reception you get at this winery is unpretentious. You suddenly feel at home and feel that you can ask any question about wines without looking untraveled. It is like they are telling you that everyone is urbane and suave in their own right and the fact that you do not know much about wines is not really a big deal.

3. Shafer Vineyards

If there is something I love about this vineyard is that you get to sample their expertly prepared wines and pairings in the outdoors. The smell of fresh grapes in the fields is something that you cannot have anywhere else. Make sure you get to capture a picture against the beautiful vineyards backdrop.

4. Peju Province Winery

If I did not know better, I would think that this is a far off farm in the heart of Mexico, but nay, it is in Napa valley and its landmark is its tasting room tower. The experience you get at the winery's pristine gardens, unique culinary events, and reserve and barrel tastings is what fond memories are made of.

5. Jamieson Ranch

The wine tasting fee here is an affordable $15. With 300 acres of gently rolling hills and terraced vineyards, the view offered here is unrivaled. Equally amazing is the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines that are popular in the San Pablo Bay Area.

Napa Valley is a wine connoisseur's paradise. Here, you will not only get variety but also value for money.
