Just returned from Napa last week. You won't be disappointed with Opus One and Robert Mondavi. Another place worth visiting is Clos Pegasus. Have fun!GR2KX Survivor - Team Ace of Spades

you can't really go wrong with any of the places, you need to decide what types of wine you like and then go to a place that specializes in each - different regions produce different types of wine eg napa, sonoma, etc. also, most places - if you don't have a contact - will not give you the experience you are likely looking for. smaller places will talk to you more about the wine, give tours of the winery, etc.
my buddy owns Jarvis, he will treat you well if you go there, but it is by reservation only.
Luna - good wine but not the greatest place for tasting
silver oak - known for their cab, decent tasting setup
carneros - haven't been but heard good things
Schramsberg - champagne, by appointment only but a must if your going with a female
zd - will likely give a tour if called in advance - good people
call around, ask what their tasting setup is like, do they include barrel tasting, a tour, etc. pm if you'd like more info
