Stag's Leap Wine Cellars unveiled its new FAY Outlook & Visitor Center last week with a gala event of historic proportions. Not only did we oooh and ahhh over the Javier Barba of Barcelona designed structure which sits on a little hill, but we...

When Angéle opened on the banks of the Napa River more than 10 years ago, it was a brave move, considering there was very little in the way of foot traffic in Downtown at that time. (The river even still flooded from time to time.) Napa has...

The best fish tacos I have ever had were in a strip mall in Napa, CA. The octopus burrito, the classic fish tacos, or the La Taquiza fish tacos are all amazing! When they have strawberry horchata, get two, you won't regret it!

Under-the-radar winery making wonderful Cabernet and amazing Syrah. I can still smell the meaty, bacon notes of the Syrah. Warm staff and beautiful setting make for a well-rounded wine experience. These are "farmer first" folks who are making...

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...

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...

The Oxbow Public Market features purveyors of fine foods, and the Oxbow Cheese and Wine Merchant is one of my favorite stops inside. The long display of cheeses beckons, and the staff gladly offer samples of cheese to help you find the perfect...

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...

When the famous Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto opened a branch of his eponymous restaurant in downtown Napa it was definitely a game changer for the dining scene, bringing a bit of Vegas-style flash to wine country. To be safe, make a reservation...
