What Bert Has To Say About Napa Metro Area


Napa is a small town located at the base of California’s famed Napa Valley, a Mediterranean-like wine-growing region extending 30 miles northwest. Once agricultural in form and purpose, Napa has become a commercial and residential center. It also houses some commuters heading south into the San Francisco Bay Area. The town itself is unremarkable, and fortunately, growth controls have preserved its modest size. The wine-growing areas are beautiful, and the fortunate arrangement of mountains and the Bay have created one of the most appealing micro-climates in the world. The wine growing region is not only prosperous and acclaimed worldwide, but the wineries themselves create quite a tourist attraction.
