California State Route 29, fondly known as the Silverado Trail, will lead you around the eastern edge of Napa Valley’s six towns: Calistoga, St Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, Yountville and Napa. Take your time savouring some of the best wine the US has to offer while exploring this unforgettable wine region. Napa Valley is very close to the city of San Francisco and there are hundreds of wineries in this area, providing options for every palate and budget.
Built not far from Calistoga, Castello di Amorosa is a medieval replica castle holding 107 rooms over eight levels, both above and below ground. This opulent structure includes a moat, drawbridge, defensive tours, interior courtyard, chapel, torture chamber and great hall. To top it all off, wine is sold in the castle and available for visitors to taste.
For a side of history with your wine, visit the Beringer Rhine House, Napa Valley’s oldest continuously operating winery. The town of Napa also offers a variety of restaurants and hotel options for visitors to revel in this quaint and inviting region, so take your time to explore.
