Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C.

Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA.
