Napa Valley Country Club
Long before “wine country” was synonymous with Napa Valley, there was Napa Valley Country Club, a tucked-away gem in the bucolic foothills of the Vaca Range, located in the middle of the Coombsville American Viticultural Area (AVA). Coombsville is a sub-appellation of Napa Valley AVA; and the newest, being granted its status in 2007. Napa Valley Country Club began life one hundred years ago, in 1915, as the Napa Golf & Country Club, leasing 100 acres from local notable, Frank Coombs, for the construction of a 9-hole course. In 1923, Napa Valley Country Club was incorporated and purchased the leased land from Mr. Coombs for $7,500 (the original 100 acres, plus 30 acres more).
