Wine Country Chick’s Napa Winery Picks

Hello wine lovers! I’m selfishly writing this post because I receive this same question almost daily, which is “Which wineries should I visit in Napa!?”. It’s no secret that escaping to wine country is one of my favorite activities, so you’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for recommendations.
