A Tuscan Experience in Napa Valley
We hope you’re enjoying your little “pre-tour” of our favorite Napa Valley wineries. As your trusted Napa Valley wine tour company, we are extremely selective when it comes to choosing the Napa Valley wineries we visit. We want to ensure your Napa Valley wine tasting tour is exactly the way you envision and you’re completely satisfied with each and every winery you visit.
The second winery on our “favorites” list was founded by the greatest race car driver of all time, Mario Andretti. Together with his buddy Joe Antonini, former Chairman and CEO of Kmart Corporation, they created Andretti Winery (www.andrettiwinery.com).
This winery captures the beauty and tranquility of a Tuscan countryside retreat. Andretti has literally transformed this Napa Valley estate into a piece of Tuscany. Everything slows down as you drive down the quiet country lane past buildings modeled after the Italian village where Andretti grew up.
Andretti Winery is located in the Oak Knoll region of Napa Valley. Their 42-acre estate vineyard produces Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Merlot. The moderate temperature in this region is ideal for growing diverse varietals including Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. As a result, Andretti wines are some of the best fruit-forward and food-friendly wines available today. When you visit this winery on our Napa Valley wine tour, you’ll have the opportunity to taste wines from their three distinct portfolios – Montona Reserve Series, Napa Valley Series, and Villa Andretti Series.
Why We Love Andretti Winery
Andretti Winery is part of our Napa Valley wine tour because each time we visit, it’s as if we’re stopping in a little Tuscan village. You’re literally enveloped by Italian charm and peaceful beauty as you make your way to their beautiful tasting room. When you arrive, you’re immediately treated like family and shown authentic Italian hospitality.
We also love the wide variety of tasting options. Whether you’re looking for the traditional Tuscan Tasting or prefer a Napa Valley winery tour with glass in hand, they have it all! Food and wine tastings are another popular option while their VIP tastings in Andretti Winery’s exclusive VIP lounge will impress the ultimate wine connoisseur. Andretti Winery also offers an in-home tasting where they bring their wine to you!
We love Andretti Winery and we know you will too! If you’re interested in learning more about this winery or the other Napa Valley wineries we visit on our tours, contact Dynamic Napa Wine Tours at 707-252-2300.
