We love this place with its small shops and restaurants. We love The Kitchen Door, Hog Island Oyster Co., C-Casa. Also, you can buy the best beef (Five Dot Ranch), pork (Fatted Calf), fish, and cheese for your home-cooked barbecued meals at our house.

An authentic Mexican restaurant in downtown Napa. It offers "an authentic and market-driven Mexican menu inspired by travels abroad, particularly traditional Mexican street fare. Creating a new take on regionally-influenced Mexican cuisine, the menu aims to showcase a diversity of dishes from across the country."

Beginning 1971, Stag's Leap poured samples of its fantastic Cabernets in a tasting room down the road from the vineyards that produce the wine. But in 2014 the winery opened a new building and visitor center, designed by Barcelona architect Javier Barba, with floor-to-ceiling views of its vineyards as the centerpiece.

To visit Napa without a stop at Robert Mondavi's mission-style winery in Oakville is to miss a significant piece of wine history. To celebrate Robert Mondavi's 100th birthday in 2013, the winery installed a tasting bar in its Vineyard Room, which also acts as a gallery for guest artists.

Ambitious pioneers David Graves and Dick Ward helped prove that the Carneros region above San Francisco Bay wasn’t just sheep grazing land: With its warm afternoons and cool breezes, it was ideal territory for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their winery off Route 121, Saintsbury (named for a legendary English connoisseur) is an ideal place to experience the Carneros, a few miles but sometimes seemingly a world away from central Napa. Book a reservation (required) and enjoy the seated, $35 five-wine tasting in the gardens or—depending on the weather—in the cellar.

Chandon is one of the few wineries in Napa Valley with a food menu to complement its sparkling wine list. Purchase wine buy the flight, glass or bottle then settle into the festive patio or find a quiet spot in an Adirondack on the expansive lawn under the oak trees.

One of the top large wineries in the world, Beringer has long done an exceptional job of producing a substantial volume of reliably high-quality wine, from the entry level bottlings to the often extraordinary Private Reserves. Its impressive, 1884 fieldstone Rhine House, housing the tasting room, is a Napa Valley landmark. There are various tasting and tour options; try the $55 Taste of Beringer Tour, which includes a barrel sampling in the old, hand-dug caves and a guided, sit-down tasting.

Duckhorn, one of the pioneers of Napa’s modern era, first struck gold with Merlot, notably its famous luxury bottling from Three Palms Vineyard, which remains its flagship. The winery also has a following for palate-flattering Cabs and Sauvignon Blancs. Though the main portfolio tends toward the expensive, there are more affordable wines well worth enjoying under the Decoy and Canvasback labels. Reserve ahead and taste five current releases for $35, or opt for various limited bottle tastings.
