A busy entrepreneur, Anthony Jean-Claude makes the most of his personal time. He enjoys many activities, including fine dining and good wines. Anthony Jean-Claude is particularly fond of wines from Napa Valley, a growing region located north of San Francisco.
The Napa Valley remains a prime growing region for wine grapes because of its diversity of microclimates. With temperate weather patterns, rainfall that yields concentrated and flavorful grapes, as well as varied soils ranging from silty clay to volcanic rock, Napa Valley grapes thrive and form the basis for world-class wines. In fact, wines produced in the region rival Old World favorites from France and Italy, with varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Syrah, Nebbiolo, and Pinot Noir.
Visitors to Napa Valley can tour the area’s 15 sub-appellations. Each appellation imparts its own unique flair to the wines, arising from terroir, climate, growing conditions, and the skill of the winemaker.
