6 Napa Vineyards For the Art Lover
Napa Valley is gorgeous. It’s filled with great wine. And it draws in many people who are creative, artistic, daydreamers. What you ought to know if you’re one of these people is that some of the vineyards are better than others in terms of catering to your creative side. The six Napa Vineyards on this list are all places that you can tour, do some wine tasting and also enjoy art and design on display during your visit.
3700 Soda Canyon Road, Napa CA 94558
The family behind this Napa vineyard has been creating great wine for six centuries. Of course, that wine wasn’t always made in Napa. The family is originally from Italy and had vineyards in beautiful settings there before moving to this beautiful setting. Nevertheless, that long history makes it a place filled with a great appreciation for a quality product. And they brought some of the beauty of home with them, which you can see in the art and design here.
4411 Redwood Road, Napa CA 94558
This is the number one winery for people who have an equal love for good wine and contemporary art. There is a full museum of artwork on display here. The winery (which is a sustainable winery, by the way) is located in a historic setting that is also of great visual appeal. Daily tours are available but if you book in advance then you can also schedule a wine and food paired tasting.
424 Crystal Springs Road, St. Helena, CA 94574
Merus used to come from someone’s garage but their passion for wine grew into a full vineyard. It’s an amazing place that produces just one artisan Cabernet Sauvignon each year. Every inch of this new place has been designed with visual appeal in mind from the caves for barrel storage to the high-end tasting room. Enjoy some luxury!
8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford CA 94573
If you love photography then you’ll love this vineyard that has photography galleries for you to visit during your trip to the vineyard. When you’re done with that you can enjoy terrific views from a garden patio or check out the design of the tasting salon. No matter where you go on the grounds, you’ll enjoy a great aesthetic experience.
4500 Silverado Trail, Napa CA 94558
Your culinary senses can be completely indulged at this great vineyard if you plan in advance. That’s because they accept reservations for a six course dining experience that, of course, comes with wine pairings. The vineyard specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon. If food is what gets your creative juices flowing then you’ll leave here inspired and yearning to make something!
Upper Atlas Peak Road, Napa CA 94558
Maybe you want to come here for the award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon. Or maybe you want to check out the red soil and volcanic rock that make the grounds of this vineyard so unique and beautiful. Maybe you’re excited about the opportunity to enjoy a picnic in the vineyard or some other type of tasting that is tailored just to you. But if you really want to experience the art of this place then book a stay in the vineyard guest house and really indulge in the setting!
