Travel Tales: Napa Valley
by Jen O'Neill
I went to college only 40 minutes from the Napa Valley but it took me two years to finally visit. I stumbled upon it the way some of the most extraordinary discoveries are made—by taking a wrong turn. The sight of the region’s plush terra firma drew me in and I couldn’t turn back. Every visit thereafter confirmed this: the Napa Valley is a visual symphony in its own right, and simply put, an overture to paradise.
