Napa Valley Photos

THE NAPA VALLEY, NAPA, CALIFORNIA
The Napa Valley is home to some of the best wineries in the world, and certainly in the USA. The Napa Valley is also home to the CIA, Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. The CIA trains some of the world's top chef's. Their main headquarters is in New York, but their west coast branch is in Napa.  In the 1860's European grapes were transplanted in the valley, and within 10 years the area was producing much demanded wine in San Francisco and other nearby cities. Wine has continued to be produced in this area, and today it boasts some of the finest wines to be found in the world. During my visits to this area, I have met people from all over the world that traveled to this valley to sample the fine wine, excellent food, and hospitality that is available from world class inns in the area.
