Snapshots of Napa Valley

Located in Northern California about 1.5 hours from San Francisco, Napa Valley attracts tourists from far and near for its famed wineries and fascinating food. With hundreds of splendid wineries and dozens of top-rated restaurants, Napa Valley is popular among those who seek the ultimate wine and dine experience. 

During a recent trip to Napa Valley, I got a chance to take picture of a few famous restaurants and wineries.

The French Laundry by Chef Thomas Keller. The world-famous restaurant is located at an ordinary-looking farm house in Yountville, Napa Valley.

Castello di Amorosa Winery in Calistoga, Napa Valley. In addition to wine tasting, a tour is offered inside the Tuscan castle. “Castello di Amorosa” translates to “castle of love” in Italian.

Why do people love to wine and dine in Napa Valley? Perhaps, the answer is in the lush greenery of the vineyards.
