Save Place
1 Main St, St Helena, CA 94574, USA
Tucked away on an eight-acre estate at the top of St. Helena’s main street, the Harvest Inn by Charlie Palmer could easily be mistaken for a private country manse somewhere in England, or even northern France. Its lush gardens are traversed...
Save Place
1815 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558, USA
For a place that’s meant to be quintessentially romantic, Napa can often feel overwhelming, with its myriad wineries, numerous Michelin-starred restaurants, many winding trails to bike and hike, and hot springs to sooth aching muscles. But...
Save Place
2555 Main St, St Helena, CA 94574, USA
The second location of the country’s best cooking school is not just for students. The Greystone campus was originally built in the 1800’s as a gravity flow winery cooperative (as the restoration continues, they often find bottles of...
Save Place
Napa Valley, CA, USA
Just to cover their bases, this outdoor garden made sure the rules were clear in every language. I can appreciate that.
Save Place
Mt St Helena, California 95448, USA
Up a beautiful, but nauseatingly winding road from Calistoga is Mount St. Helena — enter through the Robert Louis Stevenson State Park (where Stevenson lived in a cabin and wrote Silverado Squatters in 1883) and trek five miles to the top....
Save Place
6795 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
While the image of riding bicycles through a sun-drenched vineyard is romantic, the reality of biking in wine country can be a rigorous, athletic endeavor. But very few places offer as good a reward for your efforts. The best way to see the lay of...
Save Place
Most people come to Napa for the wine, but the Napa Valley is also an amazing place for people who love nature and the outdoors. Napa Valley Adventure Tours offers hiking, biking, and kayaking trips around the Valley. And of course, in addition to...
Save Place
6640 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
There was a time when the French Laundry actually washed shirts. Now, that is just a bad joke (as in "They were a bit heavy on the starch; I don't think I'll be going back"). There are those who say Thomas Keller's famous flagship restaurant that...
Save Place
The menu at SolBar is divided into two sections: "healthy" and "hearty." "Light" on the left; "comforting" on the right: Smoked salmon with caviar on the left; sweet pumpkin bruschetta with ricotta on the right. Steamed halibut on the left; brined...
Save Place
180 Rutherford Hill Rd, Rutherford, CA 94573, USA
If you’ve ever wondered where you can have a proper bowl of miso soup and a perfectly roasted salmon for breakfast while watching the fog lift from the floor of Napa Valley, you have found it. (Okay, they also serve croissants.) In addition to the...
Save Place
1345 Railroad Ave, St Helena, CA 94574, USA
Tucked away from the main drag in St. Helena, Terra’s Michelin-starred, Asian-influenced cuisine is a much-needed departure from the chop-and-serve farm-to-table fare that dominates Napa Valley restaurant scene. The $75 tasting menu (black...
Save Place
6534 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
Some say that Keller’s second restaurant in Yountville is even better than his flagship, the French Laundry. The rest of us may never know. But Bouchon is open until midnight seven days a week, and you can grab a seat at the bar without a...
Save Place
1500 Diamond Mountain Rd, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
When founder Al Brounstein used to host what we would now call wine club parties at Diamond Creek Vineyards, he wouldn't serve any Diamond Creek wine. But he would, however, offer one lucky person the opportunity to buy a magnum through a lottery....
Save Place
2970 Monticello Rd, Napa, CA 94558, USA
At Jarvis, it's what you don't see that's most impressive. While the approach and the views from the property are nothing to shrug about, the estate is really set apart by what's underground: the entire winery. Fermentation tanks, offices,...
Save Place
849 Zinfandel Ln, St Helena, CA 94574, USA
Jean-Charles Boisset, the playboy wine tycoon from one of the largest négociant, or wine merchant, families in France has turned a classic Napa Valley estate into a grown-up playground. From the “Theater of Nature” where Joe...

933 Main St, St Helena, CA 94574, USA
The line for burgers and fries at Gott's Roadside (formerly Taylor's Refresher and don't you forget it) in St. Helena can be ridiculous in the afternoon, but if you go in the morning, you'll have your choice of picnic tables—either in front...
Save Place
4048 Sonoma Hwy, Napa, CA 94559, USA
When you tell your friends that you're headed here, everyone will chime in about the dish that you have to get. 'Make sure you try the smoked salmon flatbread!' 'The burger, be sure to get the burger'.' 'The donuts! You have to get the donuts!'...
Save Place
1345 Henry Rd, Napa, CA 94559, USA
Napa, Sonoma, and Yountville mean endless miles of deliciousness! Schramsberg specializes in a vast selection of the sparkling wines fit for the White House. (Seriously. It's served at the White House.) The tasting was amazing, as was the tour of...
Save Place
1245 Spring St, St Helena, CA 94574, USA
In St. Helena, what was once Martini House is now a fun new restaurant called Goose & Gander. Go on a warm Friday night, ask for a table outside under the big oak tree, and order this Coastal Pimm's Cup cocktail, made with St. George Terroir...
Save Place
8445 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558, USA
Crisp and sunny Sunday at Mumm in Napa Valley, California. The January afternoon vibe contains the tormenting promise of the richness which is yet to come. The place specializes in champagne, art and a distinct kind of playfulness, best enjoyed at...
Save Place
1400 Lincoln Ave, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
All Seasons Bistro is easy to walk by without noticing, but those who eat there are treated to an excellent dining experience in Napa Valley, one of the very best areas to eat in the United States. This restaurant has been here for 30 years, on a...
Save Place
1425 1st St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
It was my first dinner out in Downtown Napa (the new place to be in Napa Valley), and it set the bar very high for the rest of my stay. My dinner at Oenotri was one of the best I've ever had. From the salad of beets, arugula, and oranges, the...
Save Place
1321 1st St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
From chocolate cabernet sauce on ice cream to freshly made brittles and exquisite chocolates, Anette's Chocolate and Ice Cream shop in Downtown Napa is the place to indulge in Napa when you want a little break from wine. The shop is reminiscent of...
Save Place
Silverado Trail, California, USA
The rolling hills of Napa Valley make for great hiking--they're not too tall, so it's not too strenuous, but the views of the vineyards and surrounding nature are priceless. If you have the good fortune to visit more than once, in different...
Save Place
520 Main St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
There are bakeries and then there is Sweetie Pies, the downtown Napa sweet shop that crafts some of the most delectable and one-of-a-kind goodies. Consider the giant homemade Oreo: two moist chocolate cookies sandwiching sweet icing. There...
Save Place
1400 Schramsberg Rd, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
When you take a sip of Schramsberg's sparkling wine, you are tasting some of the very best in California—and you are also getting a taste of Napa Valley history. Schramsberg has been making wine in the same time-consuming and labor-intensive...

6755 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
When Chef Richard Reddington was tasked with concepting a new, casual restaurant in Yountville to compliment his Michelin-starred Redd, he brought in a wood-burning oven from Italy and Liza Shaw from A16 to work her magic with yeast and flour and...
Save Place
7856 St Helena Hwy, Oakville, CA 94562, USA
Take advantage of the Mediterranean-like climate in Napa Valley (it rarely rains between May and October) and pack a picnic — without compromising on the quality of your cuisine, of course. The Oakville Grocery on Highway 29 has been supplying...
Save Place
610 1st St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
Think of the Oxbow like a high-end shopping mall for food and wine. On the east side of the Napa River, the market brings together a number of epicurean purveyors under one roof (well, technically, it’s three different roofs). The result:...
Save Place
813 Main St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
How good is the brunch at the Thomas in downtown Napa? So good that sometimes I wake up on a Sunday morning thinking about their banana and nutella-stuffed French toast or the BLAT (bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado...with an egg on top, of...
Save Place
6528 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
Oh, Bouchon! Don't let the long line out the door discourage you—these delicious pastries are well worth the wait and the outdoor café tables make for a lovely spot to dig in once you're handed your treats.
Save Place
7377 St Helena Hwy, Napa, CA 94558, USA
After a morning spent piddling about with tiny sips of wine and minuscule cheese trays, the mid-day meal in Napa is time to get serious. Lunchtime dining between wine tastings is no small task -- you need solidity to soak in the wine you didn't...
Save Place
580 Lommel Rd, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
There’s only one way to get into the 157-acre Napa Valley idyll known as Calistoga Ranch: as a guest. Well, you could come as a guest of a guest, but then you wouldn’t be able to lounge about in a decadent spa robe each morning,...
Save Place
6526 Yount St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
One could argue that Yountville has earned the reputation as Napa Valley's theme park — a Wine Country Disneyland, "Yount Vegas"— with its many Tuscan-style villas and Parisian bistros. "It's just like being in Italy" you can hear the tourists...
