Napa From A Cultural Perspective

     MANY believe that Napa Valley, in California, is for wine. It has more to offer. Napa has a unique business, it has crafted an ideal of wine, tasting, and experiencing vineyards. However, being a fan of beauty, but not of wine, Napa can bring you closer to experiencing culture, art, and life; within a small area. If you have an appreciation for 3D art, why not check out the Napa Art Walk? Here you see sculptures that reflect only objects you see in the heart of Italy. You can get a taste of Napa’s unique roots by checking out the Napa Historical Society. Getting away from the tasting and heat, you can experience why Napa exists. You can look into the past, seeing various items that teach new generations of the history. A fan of olives? You don’t need an expensive flight to Andalucia or Italy, you can check out the Round Pond Estate. Here some of the best olives on earth can be found. These olives reflect the fact that Napa has a climate comparable in beauty and weather to Tuscany. Moving on, you can cook as well. Dive into the Silverado Cooking School; here you can learn to make new dishes, cherishing the mediterranean climate and usage of olives. Even world famous chef Malcolm de Sieyes resides over the the school and it is evident. After a day of cultural growth, it is important to relax. The Calistoga Ranch Resorts are a centerpiece, and Auberge Spa is the perfect way to reflect and think. You can cherish the warm pools, or sink into the spa, showing you that the finer things in life can be simple. However, if you are one of solitude, Robert Louis Stevenson State Park can place you into the heart of nature. You can go back to a quiet sanctuary of trees, crickets, and quiet. Some people need a break from the cultural tourism, and this park can be for you. Ultimately, Napa is seen as a wine capital, but it is much more, but you must travel the vineyard to see.
