The hype about Napa Valley in California, USA

These days I am in San Francisco and one of the college friend took me to the famous Napa Valley in California. Napa Valley is popular for it's wineries and wine tasting tours. I was very excited about the trip. When we entered into the Napa Valley, I was bit disappointed by the landscapes. Probably I had very high expectations or I was there in wrong season. This time, there were no grapes in the farms. We visited Castello di Amorosa Wineyard. I will writing a different post about this wineyard. Views from this wineyard were nice, as it is located on a hill but aging of the wines was not seriously considered when it comes to wine tasting. Overall it was a good experience which didn't meet my expectations :). I will be writing a detailed post on this visit and will definitely visit Napa Valley again in main season.

Really? I love my drives into California Wine Country. I like seeing miles and miles of vineyards (and the wine's great too.

Just across this winery is another one called Sterling. You might have seen a white building on a hill nearby. Good one, that.

Great picture, there Vijay.
Drives around California are awesome.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will visit Sterling when I visit again during harvest season.
