It starts with the climate. Napa Valley has a rare climate – it is like the Mediterranean but in California. The summers are warm – but not blazing hot – the winters are not freezing cold, and there is a small amount of rain within the year. So, vines can grow almost all year round, that allows grapes to grow and develop top flavours. Most of the best wines in the world come from places in the Mediterranean – thanks to the climate.
However, Napa has more than a great climate. The soils here are very diverse – there is thought to be around 100 types, which is over half the types that exist on earth!
