The Napa Valley has been endowed with the perfect environment to cultivate some of the world’s finest wine grapes, and an exploration of its sub-appellations (defined grape growing areas) reveals the amazing array of soils, microclimates and topography that enables growers and winemakers to craft wines of the finest quality across a broad range of varietals.

Ms. Miller stars in the movie opposite Ari Graynor (The Sitter, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist).
