Dessert Wine

               Total Trail Miles 23.8

               (Approximately 4.5 hours / 3 Visits)

             

Dessert wine is a sweet wine that's typically high in sugar manufactured through the natural process on the vine, by removing water or adding it before/or after fermentation. In addition, some dessert wines are fortified to create higher levels of alcohol. Only a few Napa Valley wineries produce a dessert wine but we've discovered some of best available for your enjoyment. Without question and for obvious reasons, the route has to begin at Prager Port. The remaining trail is a unique exploration of wine made in its most seductive style from the very fine white grapes of Napa Valley.
