    Default Going to Napa for 2 nights... Which winery should I visit

    This section isn't as happening as it used to be...

    I was thinking about going to Opus One, and maybe picking up a bottle to bring back. What else should I check out?

    Is there a tour that visits multiple places that you've personally been on that you would recommend?

    I gotta get up there. Where I really want to go is to Paso Robles, such yummy Carbernets come from there

    My girlfriend and I visit the Napa area probably 5 or 6 times a year. Castello di Amorosa is awesome. Only winery I found to be really worth the visit. Ox Bow Public market is a fun stop for lunch. C Casa makes amazing tacos. I'd recommend the duck taco.

    For dinner, I'd recommend Lucy's @ Bardessono, Press, or Bouchon. All are fantastic. You can't miss the bacon sampler at Press. If you make it for lunch, the Masami Ranch burger at Lucy's is one of the best burgers I've ever had.

    Just realized I am staying at the Hilton Sonoma.. Its a 30 minute drive and Im only there for one night. I figure first day, do a late check in, go straight to Napa, then head back to Sonoma and do a few tastings there the next morning..

    Thanks for the advice guys Im writing this all down..

    Ah. Yeah the Hilton isn't too far from Napa. OxBow is in Napa. Bouchon and Bardessono are in Yountville, just up the freeway. The Press is a little farther up past Yountville, right next door to Dean & Deluca. Wineries are literally everywhere in between.

    Looks like I saw this too late. I am in that area about once a month and for Napa, my top choice would be V. Sattui/Castello di Amorosa (both owned by Dario Sattui). The castle is an awesome sight to see and walk through, but doesn't have food. V. Sattui is the only winery in Napa with full food options and have bbqs with pulled pork, tri trip, seafood, and other delicious things. Also, V. Sattui's highest end wine, Paradiso, won best in show at the international wine competition.

    If you can venture out a bit, Vezer in Suisun Valley is an awesome and intimate winery with very nice wines. The owner, Frank, is a blast to talk to and it seems like he is loving life.

    My girlfriend is from the Bay area so whenever we're out there we go to Napa. My favorite spots are Stonestreet and Silver Oaks. Would love to visit Opus--anyone been there?
