Everyone knows that Napa Valley is home to some of the world’s finest, largest and best-known wineries, but sometimes it’s the hidden gems that stand out the most. Since not every winery features a tasting room, it may be difficult to discover these lesser known, but equally exquisite, wines. Below are some of our Tasting Room recommendations where you can sample wines that you may not be able to find anywhere else. Enjoy!
