NAPA

History and luxury abound!

Whether you would like to join a group shuttle for a casual wine tasting experience, or take a private tour with your friends and family to explore the most exclusive wineries in Napa, Terrific Tours is happy to show you the best of the legendary Napa Valley wineries.

Though just 30 miles long and a few miles wide, Napa Valley was the first American Viticultural Area or AVA to be designated in California in 1981. It is home to diverse microclimates and soils uniquely suited to the production of world class wine grapes. With a heavy emphasis on big reds, in the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon truly is king, you can also find great Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Sauvignon Blanc among others.

As the first Agricultural Preserve in America, it’s also a region of incomparable natural beauty, the gently rolling hills, streams, and meadows were appreciated by the Native American population long before the first European settlers arrived.

In spite of its international renown, Napa Valley is one of the smallest winegrowing regions in the world with more than 90% of all wineries family owned. The passion and dedication of these vintner’s is unsurpassed.

While grapes grow everywhere, some of the remote regions have very few wineries to visit. Napa AVA’s include Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain, Chiles Valley, Stags Leap, Yountville, Oak Knoll, Mount Veeder, Calistoga, St. Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, Atlas Peak, Carneros, Coombsville, and Wild Horse Valley. We are familiar with all of these regions and will help guide you find the perfect cabernet sauvignon wine tasting experience!
