Napa Valley Passport
Napa Valley may be as well known for its wineries as it is for being a valley. It's even easier to access the lush area's best wine spots with Napa Valley Passport. Each passport blends the size of a credit card with the function of a coupon book, brimming with deals for two at places such as Summer Estates Winery and Volker Eisele Family Estate. Passport-holders thus enjoy cheaper tastings and wine by the bottle, along with views of the valley's verdant terrain.
