Fond of sparkling wine? Napa Valley is the perfect place for you.

VinoVisit suggests a perfect itinerary that will delight your palate. 

Discover the region in a sparkling way!

 

THE IDEA

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles.
Drinking sparkling wine always makes me happy. It’s the best way to celebrate an event, or simply to treat oneself for any reason.
I reassure you, the Champagne region in France is not the only place in the world where you can enjoy a great and fine bubbly. The Napa Valley has a lot to offer to enhance your senses!
I then thought, why not create a special itinerary just focused on sparkling wine? Picture yourself: a warm and sunny day in The Napa Valley, tasting some wonderful and fresh sparkling wine in a gorgeous winery…
So I planned everything, no need to spend hours on the Internet looking. I have selected them for you!


Here is the plan for the day
: 2 bubbly wine tastings + 1 lunch = a lot of fun.


YOUR DAY

  • 10:30 am: Sparkling Tour and Tasting at Domaine Chandon
Start the day with some sparkling!
With roots in France and hearts in California, Chandon’s sparkling wines reflect California character yet are true to the practices of méthode champenoise.
Join a Chandon ambassador for this very special in-depth look at their prestigious wines. You will be guided during this tour and learn how their sparkling wines are crafted and aged from vineyard to bottle to cellar. During the tasting, sample specially selected sparkling wines from their portfolio
