The diversity of terroir that makes Napa wines so great can also be found in our water ways. Our guests experience the full spectrum from salt water to fresh water with the City in the middle.
By 2050, 65% of the Napa River will be restored as if man hadn't yet occupied its reaches. The Living River Project is being matched by over $1 billion in private investment to Downtown Napa
