When two wines – a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay – from California's Napa Valley won the 1976 Paris Tasting over some of France's most famous wines, the area was home to just a few dozen wineries.The small towns that dot Highway 29 are charming, the people are kind, the food is outstanding and the wine, well, the wine is as good as they say.Napa Valley really is all about the wine.For winery tours and tastings, ditch the stretch limo crowd at the big wineries along Highway 29 and head to the hills, where a plethora of medium- and smaller-sized wineries awaits.Fisher rests on the other side of Spring Mountain in Sonoma County and makes wines from both Napa and Sonoma.In Napa, you'll get to taste Cabs and Chardonnays, but also great Sauvignon Blancs, Syrahs, Pinot Noirs, and the real authentic California gem: Zinfandel. A Napa spin on this could be where great wine flows, great food follows.Napa is a city of 75,000 in the midst of a makeover that has put it back on the food-and-wine map.
