Napa Valley is famous for the local wine, so naturally visitors need to find the best places to taste. From cult Cabernet to unusual varieties like Ribolla Gialla and labels hot off the press, the best way to find older vintages, boutique wines and brand new producers is at a local wine shop, wine bar or restaurant.
