Wine Tasting at Napa's Tasting Rooms in Napa, California
The city of Napa has been revitalized and now offers several excellent wine tasting rooms. Conveniently located within walking distance of each other (and with ample free parking), Napa's tasting rooms make an easy option for wine tasting without having to worry about driving. One of my favorites is Taste at Oxbow, just on the corner from Oxbow Public Market.
On the day that I visited, the tasting room managers were friendly and helpful, explaining the details of all the wines, including the geography of Napa Valley with the areas where the grapes came from. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable with the sense of chic that is so easily found in Napa. I recommend sitting at the table if possible and ordering a cheese plate to accompany the wine tasting.
