Napa Valley, in the Bay Area in California, is the main wine growing region of the United States of America and one of the major wine regions of the world.

It is also known for its gourmet restaurants, cafes, and spa-treatment centers.

Napa Valley, a world famous wine area, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in California. More than three million visitors come each year, often overcrowding the roadways on summer weekends.

Peak times are the summer months and the harvest “crush” during September and October.

Napa Valley is home to more than four hundred wineries.

With wine as a focus, great dining naturally emerged to complement it. The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in St. Helena supplies a steady stream of well-trained chefs, supplementing the already prestigious chefs drawn by Napa Valley’s reputation and locale.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
