Most people who go to Napa Valley as a tourist think that it’s all about wine in that region of the United States. There are actually many other activities to engage in and sites to see in Napa Valley that have nothing to do with wine at all.
If you’re a person with an eye for 3-D art, a visit to the Napa Art Walk is a must-see event. This exhibit features the work of artists from across the nation, some of which is for sale so be sure to bring your wallet. Another place to stop is the Napa Valley Historical Society which has numerous historical artifacts that have been found over the years in the region. The museum can either be independently explored or there are scheduled tours available that are led by local historical authorities.
Another place that’s off the wine beaten trail is the Silverado Cooking School. They have classes that can be completed in a day which helps people of every cooking skill level add some more flavor to their game. Classes are led by Chef Malcolm de Sieyes who has worked in some of the world’s top restaurant kitchens.
For those that do live a life filled with wine, Traveling Vineyard is an organization they should know about. Traveling Vineyard is a vintner that sells its wine through a national network of Wine Guides. Each Wine Guide operates their own home-based business. They schedule wine tasting events in clients homes that feature some of the wine that Traveling Vineyard sells. The client and their guests are then given the opportunity to sign up to buy the wines either as a one-time purchase or to set up regular deliveries.
Traveling Vineyard was established in 2001. The company was set up under the premise that most wine tasting events are far too stuffy and formal. The types of wine tasting that Wine Guides put on are meant to be less formal and a lot more fun. The Wine Guides learn all about the wines they sell and how to pair each variety with what food as well as plenty of other wine knowledge.
