The Napa Valley

Antica Napa Valley is the realization of Piero Antinori’s long-standing desire to produce a Napa Valley wine and a milestone in the family’s long winemaking tradition. 

But why Napa Valley?

Located just an hour north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is one of the smallest yet most diverse wine regions. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate, ideal for growing premium wine grapes, and its varying topography, soils and microclimates allow a wide range of varietals to grow well here. Piero saw the opportunity to maximize the region’s potential to produce wines that were distinctive and elegant, yet remained true to the tradition, culture, and taste of Antinori wines.

We encourage you to discover for yourself just how special this region is with a visit. A tour and tasting at Antica Napa Valley is a given, but here’s our suggested itinerary to round out a perfect day in Napa Valley.

In the meantime, a little armchair research is always fun. Here are some videos (produced by the Napa Valley Vintners) that provide a more in-depth look into the science, history, viticulture, winemaking, and people that have shaped this wine region.
