"A great innovation for the serious wine enthusiast and the tourist alike educational, entertaining, useful and fun too!" --Robert Mondavi
From the Publisher
Did you know there are over 300 wineries in Napa Valley? Would you like a renowned winery expert to help you decide where to visit? We did. So we asked Antonia Allegra, the editor-in-chief of Napa Valley's premier wine country magazine, to construct the ideal guide to help visitors get the most out of their visit to Napa Valley. The result is an award-winning guidebook that goes well beyond where other guides stop. Napa Valley Tour Guide is a personal tour of the top eleven wineries and five historic locations that are essential to experience on any visit to Napa Valley. Its a combination of a guidebook, an audio tour (CD) and computer CD-ROM.

This is really a terrific "three in one" guide. The Expedition Guide which accompanies the computer CD and the two touring discs is filled with fascinating history, facts, tips, maps, photographs, wine vocabulary, science, humor and trivia about Napa's wineries and local color. The Guide alone is excellent.
In addition to viewing the brilliantly prepared Guide text, the reader is treated to Antonia Allegra's most entertaining audio tour (on two driving discs). It's like having your own personal guide tell you all sorts of fascinating tales, tidbits and history about the best of Napa Valley ... and we, as listeners, enjoy each and every story. In her most pleasant voice, Allegra skillfully presents the facts and related bits omitting nothing except the smell of the cork and the taste of the grape!
The CD has interactive sections as well as animated movies and quiz games. By the end of the "tour", you'll feel as if you've treated yourself to the world of vinification (converting grapes to wine), enology (science of wine and wine making), and the beauties and surprises found throughtout the Napa Valley region.
You'll have fun broadening your knowledge of "God's country/Napa Valley" in the comfort of your home and thereafter, in the convenience and comfort of your car as you personally tour the 16 stops (encompassing 58 miles) of Napa Valley, the wineries and surroundings. You don't have to be an enophile to enjoy this presentation; however, if you tour and taste, there's even a "wine tasting" record in the Guide for your personal observations and notations.
Great gift for yourself or anyone interested in a good read-&-listen-&-learn about Napa Valley, wine, California history and travel. We highly recommend this cleverly formatted, well thought out, brilliantly presented and fairly priced Expedition Guide. It'll be a treat for all five senses. Cheers!
My wife and I had the opportunity to stay in Napa Valley for a week this summer as we passed through California. By even greater fortune we had the chance to use Antonia Allegra's wonderful Expedition Guide to Napa Valley. This CD travel guide can be used in your car stereo and gives you the option of having a Napa Valley expert sitting in your own car.
Antonia Allegra is the expert on the Napa Valley, not only on the wine trails, but also about everything of interest in Napa Valley itself, even its geology. As you drive up the valley Antonia prepares you for what you can expect, visit and do. All the sights, history, and vineyard backgrounds are explained. I consider this concept as one of the best ideas to hit the tourist market for years.
The range of information is presented in a user friendly manner so even an `old duffer' like myself found it easy to operate, and Antonia's charming voice made it even easier to follow.
I would recommend this Expedition guide to anybody visiting Napa Valley.
