Transcripts - Napa Valley Wines: A Primer

  • 1. Antoine Chaya, who currently acts as Senior Director of Strategic Accounts with Oracle Corporation, balances his professional obligations with several leisurely activities, including sampling fine wines. Working out of Redwood Shores, California, Antoine Chaya takes advantage of the opportunity to visit nearby Napa Valley, long regarded as one of the premier destinations for wine enthusiasts. Below is a brief introduction to some of the wines available in the region.
  • 2. Napa Valley, though not overly large, contains an array of soil types and climate conditions, making it ideal for the production of several varietals. Cabernet sauvignon, one of the most popular grape types, produces elements of herbs and spices, or deeper flavors such as currant and leather. Napa Valley chardonnays, another popular offering, pair well with lighter meals, such as seafood and pasta, and run the gamut from clean, crisp tastes to more intriguing and layered ones. Merlot, zinfandel, malbec, sauvignon blanc, and pinot grigio are also mainstays of the Napa Valley experience. Less familiar varietals include the sangiovese, which balances medium body with fruit and spice aspects, and the nebbiolo, which can take years to age well but rewards drinkers with a complex aromatic and taste profile.
  • 3. With hundreds of vintners cultivating these and other styles, the area offers visitors a wealth of wines to sample. Some of the more well-regarded wineries in Napa, according to Wine Spectator, include St. Clement Vineyards, Beaulieu Vineyard, PlumpJack Winery, and Truchard Vineyards.
