Heading further north into Oakville and Rutherford gets you to the heart of Cabernet country, where the legendary Robert Mondavi Winery presides. It’s hard to overstate this winery and its founder’s importance to the history of Napa Valley, so take a tour of the famous To Kalon Vineyard and try the wines for yourself. Chateau Montelena in Calistoga is another Napa Valley legend worth a visit. This beautiful winery’s Chardonnay took first place in the (in)famous 1976 Judgment of Paris, helping to catapult Napa Valley to international wine fame. Just south of Calistoga you’ll find even more spectacular wineries, including Trinchero Napa Valley in St. Helena, where you can taste their single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons side-by-side in the welcoming tasting room.
