Napa County is not only home to the world-famous wine region of Napa Valley but also to some of California’s most picturesque mountain ranges. You'll find serene vineyard views dotted along the hillsides, less traffic congestion, and higher air quality because the area is removed from dense metropolitan cities. With a slower pace of life, there's plenty of time to make new friends in cozy tasting rooms or at lively community events.
