San Francisco | Napa Valley

It’s Cabernet Season here in the Napa Valley. That means not only full-bodied red wines, but mild temperatures, shorter days, roaring fireplaces, maybe a little chocolate. In other words: the height of romance. Here’s our idea of a perfectly romantic day in the Napa Valley.

As one of nine recognized Great Wine Capitals, San Francisco | Napa Valley has awarded its hospitality leaders the 2018 Best Of Wine Tourism regional designations in seven categories.

Phifer Pavitt Winey has crafted a unique and world-class environmentally friendly winery creating world class Cabernet.

With a hospitality adage of, "Enter as Strangers, leave as Friends," Phifer Pavitt Winery is a place you'll never forget. The winery was recently given a ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award for sustainability by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.
