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...

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...

Krug is an important winery for a couple of reasons: Founded in 1872, it is one of the oldest wineries in Napa Valley and it is here that Robert and Peter Mondavi had their infamous disagreement that led to Robert leaving and starting his...

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...

Music and wine seem like the perfect pairing to me. That's why I was so excited when I heard about a new festival coming to Napa this May called BottleRock. The four-day event is being held at the Napa Fairgrounds and combines some of the...

Originally built as a movie theater in 1937, the Uptown Theatre in Downtown Napa once attracted stars like Clark Gable and Marion Davies, both on the screen and in the seats. Today, it is arguably the best place to see live music in Napa Valley....

Lots of restaurants brag about having a farm-to-table ethos, but few stick to it as adamantly as Farmstead restaurant at Long Meadow Ranch Winery in Napa. Nearly every ingredient—from the grapes that go into the wines, to the beef used in...

Castello di Amorosa is an architectural wonderland right in the middle of Napa Valley. Based on fourth-generation winemaker Dario Sattui’s passion for medieval history, this replica of a 13th-century stone castle, made entirely from European...
1712 Lincoln Ave, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
This hotel is a tranquil and relaxing retreat. It's rooms are comfortable, it has a lovely pool, gardens, and thermal geysers that lead to mud baths and spas. I love the history of this place and that people have been drawn to this special land...
7399 St Helena Hwy, Napa, CA 94558, USA
After a day of wine tasting nothing hits the spot quite like some juicy pulled pork. If you are cruising around Napa looking for a yummy meal, I would recommend Mustards. But definitely call ahead or be ready to wait, this place is in high demand...
