It's all about the wine in Los Carneros. The rural area has no small towns, no restaurants, no shops--just some of Napa's best and most distinct wineries.
Spanning both Sonoma County and Napa County, Los Carneros' proximity to the San Pablo Bay lends a cool and foggy climate, ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The reulting Chardonnays are characteristically crisp and minerally, while the Pinots tend to towards spicy berry flavors with earthy undertones. Sip and sample at award-winning wineries Artesa
These distinctly cool growing conditions, the coolest in Napa, also caught the eyes of international sparkling wine producers from Champagne and beyond. As a result, producers such as Gloria Ferrer and Domaine Carneros
have made it the center of production for California sparkling wine.
