IN THE SPIRIT OF NAPA VALLEY
In 1976, a blind tasting conducted by French judges – known as the Judgment of Paris – resulted in two California wines from Napa Valley rating the best in each category. A chardonnay from Chateau Montelena and a cabernet sauvignon from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars famously beat some of the finest French labels. Today, California's Napa Valley has rightfully earned the reputation for its world-class wines, thanks to the area's terroirs, which are ideal for production. In the Spirit of Napa Valley takes readers on a visual journey, exploring local food and wine establishments, Napa's history and culture, and all things that make this wine-growing mecca one of the premier vacation and wedding destinations in the world.
