Domaine Carneros – One of The 10 Best Napa Valley Wineries to Visit
Founded by the noble French family behind Champagne Taittinger, this majestically grand château is a splendid way to enjoy the Carneros Appellation of Napa. This stunning, fairy-tale estate was modeled after an 18th-century French mansion owned by Taittinger. Carved into the hillside below the winery are cellars, repleat with exceptional sparkling wine reminiscent of those crafted by Taittinger (Champagne) himself. The winery is located in the southern part of Napa Valley, near the cooler climate of San Pablo Bay. There are three terraces from which you can enjoy breathtaking views while sipping extraordinary sparkling and Pinot Noir wines. If you elect to take a tour, you’ll experience a behind-the-scenes look at how sparkling wines are produced, from the harvesting the vineyards to the bottling process. The tour culminates with a sampling of wines paired with an array of artisan cheeses, gourmet caviar, smoked salmon, and charcuterie, while seated in the Louis XV–inspired salon or on the terrace overlooking the vineyards. Reservations are required and tastings are from 10:00am–5:30pm.
