Loaded with gorgeous photography, Truly Napa Valley is like having a local best friend show you around, only better because Sharon Pieniak truly knows where to go.

You’ll visit extraordinary Napa Valley WINERIES, both on and off the beaten track. You'll find TRAILS with gorgeous views and even discover a couple of shady swimming holes to enjoy that chilled rosé on a hot summer day. Discover SCENIC DRIVES and, find the best RESTAURANTS within your budget. 

Want to know which Napa Valley wineries and restaurants are DOG-FRIENDLY? Sharon, with a little help from her dog pal Harley, has done the legwork for you.

"On my first tour through the Truly Napa Valley app, I could tell this is exactly my kind of guide.  It has everything I am interested in and want to know about when traveling, from maps, places of interest, where to find groceries or dining for every budget, dog-friendly locations for those with canine companions, and beautiful pictures that make you want to plan an immediate visit.  There are videos of rides down certain roads if you want to experience the area before you arrive, or know what to expect, as the diversity of the area is so great.  With the added ability to take notes, it can also serve as a diary of sorts.  Even though I've been there in the past, I'll be planning my next trip to Napa Valley with this in hand. There are many places I can see I missed, and I'm eager to explore all points of interest laid out for me here.  If you're going there, BUY IT.  Truly Napa Valley is a user friendly guide well worth having."
