One of the best things about Napa Valley is its wide variety of world-renowned wineries. Whether you’re a wine aficionado or a beginner, you’ll love exploring every one of them and taste some of the best wine you’ve ever had. One of our favorite properties to recommend is the Andretti Winery. Not only is it beautiful, but it makes for a fun and authentic experience. Thousands of people from all around the world visit the winery every year, so why not join them next time you’re in Napa? Read on to learn more about your fabulous day at Andretti Winery and start planning your stay today.
What happens when a world-famous race car driver meets the former CEO of Kmart? Creating a winery might not be your first answer, but it’s what happened regardless! Mario Andretti was completing his race car driving career when he met Joe Antonini, and from their friendship, Andretti Winery was born. Their passion and dedication make the winery an ideal day trip from Churchill Manor and a pleasant way to spend the afternoon while discovering the secrets of Napa’s wine.
Andretti Winery offers a relaxing and soothing wine tasting experience. Imagine yourself walking or biking along the vines on this gorgeous property nestled in the green hills of the Napa Valley. The winery itself was modeled after the little Italian Village where Mation Andretti grew up, with a fountain, terracotta walls, and patios. You’ll feel as if you stepped into a different era (and country!), one where the pace is slower and where you can enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
The winery is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and offers a variety of tours and tastings. Hop on a stroll through the wines to have a scenic picnic, experience a unique barrel tasting, and even a book a mouthwatering dinner and wine experience with entrees cooked by chef Adam Clark to pair nicely with your wine!
Did you know you can fit several winery trips in a day? Luckily for you, they’re all fairly close to each other in the Napa Valley. You can choose from an almost endless variety of wineries to go wine tasting, but if you wish to stay in an Italian state of mind, we highly recommend checking out the Castello di Amorosa! This incredible Napa Valley landmark boasts a stunning Medieval architecture (the castle was directly imported brick by brick from Italy) and offers a lavish wine tasting experience within its walls. Did we mention the incredible views it has on the valley? It even has a little farm by the entrance where goats run wild.
