Job Description

The Napa Valley

Internationally known for its fine wines, exciting restaurants and world-class resorts, is home to approximately 135,000 residents who share a strong sense of community and a legacy of preserving and protecting our rich agricultural and open space heritage.

Located in the heart of California’s preeminent wine region, the Napa Valley is also part of the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area. With its sunny Mediterranean climate and proximity to the mountains and ocean, the Valley offers residents easy access to virtually unlimited shopping, dining, cultural and recreational opportunities.

The Napa Valley’s strategic location, natural and cultural resources, history of responsible land use planning and attractive quality of life provide the ideal mix of small town living and big city amenities. From the shores of Lake Berryessa and the peak of Mount Saint Helena to the Calistoga natural springs and the redwood forests of the Mayacamas Mountains, Napa County is a rural, scenic and historically-rich community. Home to the Napa Valley Film Festival, Bottlerock, the Fortinet Pro Golf Tournament, and Auction Napa Valley, Napa County offers many activities to its residents and visitors including fine dining, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and wine tasting, among many others.
