Poor New York. We weren’t prepared for this, this snow slaughter that has arrived before Thanksgiving with zero transition time into the blustery season. Our suggestion? Ditch the cold and head to Napa for a sun soaked wine filled weekend of R&R. What better way to give thanks than with an exceptional bottle of Napa Cab?

Napa Valley is home to the founders of America’s fine wine industry – legendary entrepreneurs who showed the world that the high art of winemaking had crossed continents. The Valley itself is one of the most rare and precious agricultural preserves on earth – a place that moves in perfect synchrony with the seasons.

In addition to being recognized as one of the “Great Wine Capitals of the World,” the Napa Valley is prized for its natural beauty, world-class accommodations, one-of-a-kind wellness experiences including the region’s famed mud baths and mineral hot springs. With the recent renaissance of Downtown Napa, the region is exploding with art galleries, farmer’s markets and an explosion of culinary influence.
