Bocce Beauty in Napa
Staying at the Carneros Inn or just visiting for an epic meal at the Farm or the casual Boon Fly Cafe? Need a way to spend some time while you wait on your table? There's no better way to soak up the more casual and more fun side of Napa than a bit of bocce. You can even order cold drinks and food to be delivered to the picnic tables in the shade, next to the courts. Call ahead to see if you need to reserve the courts.
Here's to great outdoor spaces to gather with friends and family. If you're eating at Boon Fly Cafe, don't forget to try the donuts. Seriously. Even if you're there for dinner. PS, their burger is one of the best I've had in years. Years!
The team behind Plumpjack has thought of everything. You'll enjoy every detail.
Napa is the closest you can get to Tuscany without leaving the states. If you are unable to travel to Italy, Napa checks off many of the Tuscan qualities.
Stay: With the money saved on not flying to Europe, splurge on a cottage at The Carneros Inn.
Eat: At Alex Italian Restaurant try the appetizer sformatino di pecorino con funghi della campagna trifolati (pecorino cheese flan with sautéed wild mushrooms)… amazing!!!
Do: Tour the Schramsberg caves where as many as 2.7 million bottles of their sparkling wine is stored. Schramsberg’s sparkling wines have been served at official State functions by every U.S. Presidential administration since 1972.
