17 Places to Put on Your Chef Hat |

From the East Coast to the West, and everywhere in between, the country’s collective bounty of fresher-than-fresh produce and regional delicacies adds up to an indisputably world-class culinary landscape.

Joseph Phelps Vineyards
St. Helena, California
Family owned, and run day-to-day by the Phelps family for the last forty-five years, this Napa wine hero boasts over 130 acres of rolling vineyards alongside olive groves, fruit orchards, and beehives. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more picturesque setting for an afternoon of tastings. Start with Phelps’ Insignia Blending Seminar (Insignia is not only the vineyard’s signature wine but is California’s first proprietary red Bordeaux-style blend). This is a hands-on, highly refined way to learn about terroir and varietal selections as you smell, taste, and experiment with blending the six Insignia components for a perfect glass. The Playful Plates program allows guests to continue the tasting experience (led by a seasoned wine educator) and simultaneously weave in seasonal small plates to complement the wine.
