California’s Napa Valley is the pinnacle of American viticulture. This nearly 800-square-mile expanse in Northern California is home to literally hundreds (and hundreds) of vineyards, and Napa Valley is celebrated as one of the best wine-growing regions and destinations in the world. But the viticulture movement in America isn’t limited to NorCal; all across the U.S., there are unique and incredible wine regions that rival the bounty and beauty of Napa Valley.

An escape to Wine Country is closer than you think. You don’t have to travel overseas or cross-country for a viticultural experience that’s truly bucket-list worthy; some of the nation’s finest wine regions might just be in your own backyard!
