Top Wineries in Napa Valley

Napa Valley is known across the world as the premier destination for wine tasting. The grounds are beautiful, the food phenomenal and the wines are out of this world. Napa Valley is a destination worth heading to for those who live locally as well as those on the other side of the world. However, getting around Napa Valley can prove difficult.

Taking a wine tour of Napa Valley requires a vehicle. The roads are long and winding, and each vineyard is located within a pretty safe distance from the next, giving each the impression of standing on its own despite the neighborhood of wineries in the area.

The top rated wineries in Napa Valley include:

  • Truchard Vineyards
  • Storybook Mountain Vineyards
  • St. Clement Vineyards
  • Turnbull Wine Cellars
  • Rutherford Hill Winery

In Napa Valley alone there are over 200 wineries. Just outside of the area you can find even more.  Just deciding which wineries you want to visit is a challenge—actually going to them without the opportunity to enjoy yourself should be out of the question. If you plan to make a day of visiting these wineries, you’ll need reliable transportation to take you to and from your destination as you take advantage of all the fine tasting wines.

Black Tie Transportation Worldwide can make a wine tour of Napa Valley even more enjoyable, providing you and your friends with a safe transportation option from vineyard to vineyard. Black Tie Transportation offers safe and reliable chauffeuring in high-class vehicles equipped with state-of-the-art amenities. Each vehicle exudes the look and feel of high class, which makes this transportation system fit right in with the rest of Napa Valley.

Driving yourself around Napa Valley after a wine tasting tour is dangerous—especially so for those who aren’t familiar with the area. Police are known to linger outside of wineries to ensure that everyone leaving wine tastings is in good shape to drive. This can add a lot of stress to an otherwise enjoyable experience.

Black Tie Transportation gives you the chance to create your own wine tour. You choose the destination and the timing, and your vehicle works to your watch to make sure everyone is happy and on par with your schedule. Make the most of your time exploring the best wineries in Napa Valley by taking a wine tour with Black Tie Transportation.

Andretti WineryIf you have never had the pleasure of enjoying a wine tour, then you should wait no longer. Black Tie is offering a great shuttle service that tours some of the greatest wineries around. However, we know that you may want to shop around for the best company to take you on your first wine tour. But first, to prove that Black Tie is the company that you should be using, here are the top 5 reasons to for choosing them:

  1. The driving is done for you. Let’s face it: driving is not always something that you want to do on your vacation. It is much nicer to be driven around by a company that knows exactly where to go, because quite frankly getting lost really stinks. Also, gas prices are just insane nowadays. With Black Tie’s shuttle service, you don’t have to worry about filling your tank and you get to feel secure riding with a company that knows what they are doing.
  2. Driver’s gratuity is included. We all know that tipping is the proper thing to do, but sometimes it gets confusing just how much you should tip or you dread that increased expense. Black Tie understands this and made sure to include it into your entire price, so you don’t have to worry about it.
  3. No need to pack a lunch. Black Tie is awesome in the way that they stop at the great V. Sattui for a gourmet luncheon. You will be sure to feel as if you hit food heaven. It’s always nice to know that your food is included in your tour, because you don’t have to fret over what to bring on your trip.
  4. The wine tour is great for any occasion. On Black Tie’s shuttle service, you can bring a significant other for a great date, some co-workers for a day out, or even just some friends to spend the day with. Black Tie is sure to accommodate whatever the party may consist of.
  5. Meet new people. Black Tie’s shuttle service is a great way to meet and socialize with some new people. It never hurts to meet some new people. After schooling, it tends to be more difficult to make new friends and this would be a great way to meet some.
