I realize, I am very enthusiastic about Yountville and how often I portray it as “the quintessential enclave” which I am fortunate enough to reside in and also have my office here. Yet, there is another part of the Napa Valley which many of us who live and work here experience on a near daily basis, the City of Napa. Quite often I find myself describing Napa as an “All American blue collar town”, one with many similarities to a mid-west town I spent a few of my growing-up years spent in, Massillon, Ohio. What is true about many world famous areas which attract large numbers of visitors, these places take on a certain persona and many of those who do pop in for a day or two, often wonder what is the truth about living there.
Just recently, I came across this article in the Napa Register, “YouTuber surmounts fears to produce Napa documentary“, and finally had a chance to view the video referred to in the story. All I can say that based upon my 30 plus years of being here, this is one of the best portrayals of the City of Napa I have seen from a local’s perspective . Seth Herbey’s YouTube video, “City of Napa, California – Documentary of my hometown”, is worth the time it takes to view it and I hope it gives you a better insight into the Truth of what normal, daily life is like here.
