Napa Valley Wines by Anthony Jean-Claude

March 29, 2013

Anthony Jean-Claude is an Odenton, Maryland, business executive and entrepreneur who has held senior management positions with companies such as Maryland Green BioFuel, UPC/GBMH Tobacco, and Supreme Team General Contracting. In his free time, Anthony Jean-Claude is a wine enthusiast who is particularly fond of the wines produced in California’s renowned Napa Valley.

Napa Valley wines have long been regarded as some of the finest in the United States, if not the world. Accounting for approximately 4 percent of California’s total wine production, Napa County supports 45,000 acres of vineyards and 300 individual wineries. Ranging from small family business to massive operations with international reputations, the wineries of the region are as diverse as the varietals they produce. Some of these wineries have operational histories that stretch back to the 1800s. Napa Valley wines did not gain widespread recognition, however, until the 1960s. Although the region initially garnered international attention for its Cabernet Sauvignon, the Napa Valley of today makes a wide array of quality wines including Merlots, Chardonnays, Zinfandels and Pinot Noirs.
