Established in 1850, Napa County and is one of California’s original 27 counties.
Boasting a long, rich history in grape growing (its first vines were planted in the 1840s), Napa currently has over two hundred wineries that produce more than six million cases of wine every year.
In a Word
Warmer in the summers than nearby Sonoma, Napa County living inspires a laid-back approach to life that appeals to residents and visitors alike.
Its festivals, museums and theatres all contribute to make the area rich in arts and culture, while golf courses, hiking trails, and farmer’s markets invite outdoor living throughout the year.
Known for its superb wine tasting events, spas, and restaurants (the area is a destination spot for weddings, corporate retreats, and other special occasions), Napa living means there’s never a dull moment.
The wine industry in Napa alone accounts for $4 billion of California's annual $33 billion economic impact from winemaking and related industries.
Why Napa County?
With its close proximity to the Bay Area, walkable towns, resort-like spas and world-class wineries, eateries, and outdoor activities, Napa seems to have an irresistible pull on those who are looking to set down roots or make this area their second home.
