Overview


Napa Valley hosted 2.94 million visitors in 2012, generating $1.4 billion in direct tourism spending, and more than three-quarters came for dining and wine tasting.

The spectacular Napa Valley has over 400 wineries, numerous restaurants, and endless attractions. Your time is short—you can’t see everything. Our primary objective is to ensure that you use your time most judiciously. 25 of the truly exceptional wineries are profiled in this book, along with Napa’s world-class restaurants, lodging, and spas. We are confident your stay will be an unforgettable “Napa Valley Experience.”

Napa Valley is unquestionably one of the nation’s most popular destinations. Known internationally for its beautiful countryside, exquisite vineyards, first-class lodging, and food, Napa is perhaps best known for the variety and excellence of the fine wines that are produced and bottled here. The Valley has over 100 wineries that offer public and/or private tastings. Based on the assumption that most visitors are severely (and cruelly) time-constrained, the sole purpose of this publication is to guarantee that you maximize your “Napa Valley Experience” and minimize the unproductive time of searching for wineries, lodging, and restaurants.

By efficiently choosing which wineries you will visit, where you will stay, and where you will dine before arriving in Napa Valley, you will ensure a treasured experience. We believe that these highlighted wineries, coupled with Napa’s outstanding restaurants, lodging, spas, and recreational activities, will make your stay memorable and thoroughly fulfilling. Most importantly, we want to ensure that you’ll want to come back!

Meet the Author


Rob Bond, a resident of Piedmont, CA, and a Californian for over 45 years, visits Napa Valley several times a year to experience the ambiance and uniqueness of Napa. These frequent visits have reminded him of the fact that there are hundreds of options for how someone might spend his or her time there, and that there is a great need for a definitive publication that picks the best wineries, lodges, and restaurants to maximize an all-too-brief stay in the area.

Following a tour in the U.S. Navy and after graduating from Stanford Business School, Bond has spent the past 40 years in various and wide-ranging entrepreneurial activities, including new business development, merger and acquisition work, product management for a medium-sized chemical company, real estate syndication, real estate development, and most recently as president of two niche publishing companies — Source Book Publications and Half Full Press.
