What does the Napa Valley offer you?
Deserts. Mountains. Rushing streams.
Are we forgetting something?
In fact, aside from skyscrapers and traffic jams, there are few settings you can’t find here. Just 30 miles long and 5 miles across at its widest point, the Napa Valley is one of the most geographically diverse and intriguing spots you will ever encounter. Topped by Mount St. Helena at its northern tip and bounded by the San Francisco Bay on its southern edge, the valley boasts verdant meadows and placid lakes as well as rugged foothills and rocky desert. But as beautiful as the terrain may be, there’s something else about the Napa Valley you’ll probably appreciate even more.
Only a few places on Earth can match our amazing Mediterranean climate. Thanks to moderating ocean currents and sheltering mountains, we enjoy warm, dry summers and cool winters ideal for producing not only excellent wine, but successful location shoots as well. Weather certainly won’t be a problem, but you may have difficulty with one important issue…
Considering all the charming towns in the Napa Valley, you could be hard pressed to choose where to base your shoot. Perhaps Napa – the valley’s largest town, its streets lined with stately Victorian homes and stone buildings. Or Yountville, modest in size but boasting a main street filled with chic boutiques and world-class gourmet restaurants. And then there’s Calistoga, with its Old West sensibility and tree-lined boulevards.
Each locale is unique, beautiful and – with two main thoroughfares for rapid travel from northern tip to southern boundary – no more than a 30- to 40-minute drive from anywhere in the Napa Valley. Both are amazingly scenic corridors, as are the cross roads connecting the two highways. And then there are the countless, but little-known mountain and valley roads, where we can show you gorgeous properties that few locals know exist.
If your interest lies a bit beyond the Napa Valley, we can also introduce you to charming towns and attractive settings in neighboring Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Pope Valley and beyond.
Whatever location you’re seeking, we’ll help you find it here – in the beautiful valley that we’re fortunate enough to call home.
