Introduction to Napa Valley
Napa, California, is located in the heart of Napa Valley, just 50 miles north of San Francisco. This famous valley flows through more than
30 miles of agricultural land dotted with hundreds of wineries and other businesses that support this vital and active community.

excursion serving brunch, lunch, or dinner. Special events include Vintners Luncheons, Family Fun Nights, Murder Mystery Dinners, Sunday Jazz
Concerts, and more.

Napa Valley is home to some of the best restaurants in the world. You can find classic French cuisine

open to the public. The rolling terrain and lush surroundings of this course provide the best golfing value in the Napa Valley. Choose from

throughout the wine country. These trails can be found at Bale Grist
