Tasting wine is enjoyable pretty much anywhere, but becomes especially so when there's a funky old Airstream involved. The Grade Cellars specializes in sauvignon blanc wines and their tour educates about the process, from harvest to bottling—and...

Some of the best Napa Valley winetasting experiences are to be had in the tasting rooms of the smaller wineries along the Silverado Trail. Envy Wines, just north of Calistoga (the northernmost part of Napa Valley), is a great pick if you want...

"Up the road but down to earth," says the billboard on Highway 29, attempting to coax visitors to push through St. Helena's quaint downtown and onward to Calistoga. The northernmost town in Napa Valley, it is the last to be what you might call...

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!

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...
