T

he good news: Napa Valley has a wine experience for everyone who visits. Now for the
tricky part. Not sure which of these picturesque

is for you? Let us help. We've compiled six distinct
visitor personalities and paired them up with a
handful of local wineries that suit each one best.
For more information, swing by a Welcome Center
once you get to the valley and ask the friendly volunteers to shed some insight; there are locations in
downtown Napa, St. Helena, American Canyon,
Calistoga, and Yountville. Happy sipping!

PROFESSIONAL
Dossier: You subscribe to Wine Spectator and
Wine Enthusiast. You've memorized all the
100-point wines in the last decade. You regularly dish out wine descriptors such as "jammy,"
"earthy," and "unctuous." And when a tasting-room host tells you the wine you're sampling

is a blend of different varietals, you insist you can
taste the Cabernet Franc - even though it's only
five percent.
Bottom line: You know your wine, you know what
you like, and you appreciate quality.
Wineries: Stags' Leap Winery, Trinchero Family
Estate, Crocker & Starr, Far Niente
FOODIE
Dossier: You see wine and food as inextricably
linked as chocolate and peanut butter. You can't
quaff vino without imagining what kind of meal
would make its perfect partner. You can't bear the
thought of tasting wine unless it's part of an elaborate food pairing. You've done as much research
into local restaurants as you have wineries.
Bottom line: Wine is only one part of a complete
gustatory experience.
Wineries: Cakebread Cellars, Piazza Del Dotto,
Round Pond Estate, B Cellars
