Oakville is by far one of my favorites. An exclusive, small town with amazing views. If a quiet tree lined street is what you are after, you have found it here. There are no large grocery stores or food chains, just eclectic architecture, amazing beauty and plenty of room to live the dream of living in the Napa Valley. Also, some of the best wine in the world is from this area.
With a population of 71 this is one of Napa Valley’s special communities. In the 1860’s the steam train for the Napa Valley Railroad stopped in Oakville for water. Tourists would dock their ferry boats in Vallejo on their way to Calistoga. Today the Napa Valley Wine Train follows the same path.
Oak trees are abundant in this region as a native Napa Valley tree, they cover the hillsides and valley creating breathtaking landscapes.
