Napa Valley Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Just returned from our first trip to Napa Valley. Only 3 nights but it was wonderful! Thanks to you all for the great advise!

We stayed at the Silverado Resort which was ok but next time, we'll stay further north for a more central location; maybe a B&B or the Villagio or Yountville inns. Being on the Silverado Trail was nice though; not as much traffic.

Wineries: loved Neibaum-Coppola for their reds, the architecture, the museum and the 1-1/2 hr vineyard tour which was informative, fun and ended w/tastings on a knoll above the vineyard. Very lovely.

V.Sattui for their Gamays and deli! High energy & informative place.

Sterling for the tram ride to the top and beautiful views but not for their wines or attitude.

William Hill for a perfect, leisurely first tasting experience of the trip and just 1 min. from the resort). Friendly, relaxing, informative, nice chardonnay, pretty view.

Pine Ridge, Louis Martini, Trefelen were all just ok, on the boring side.

Food favorites: lunch at The Girl & The Fig in Sonoma was very good (pear/feta omelette-yum!) And Sonoma looks charming (next trip!).

Bistro Jeanty in Yountville for dinner. Wonderful food & atmosphere and a great evening!

San Giovanni for dinner: Very good food, high energy, friendly.

Auberge du Soliel for a late breakfast. It was our anniversary, we were the only ones there and it was perfect! Very good food & beautiful views. Returned for a cocktail one evening but deck was packed & noisy so we enjoyed the sculpture garden.

The Oak Room at the Silverado for dinner: a filet mignon to die for, pretty golf course views & complimentary after dinner drinks. Nice!

Greystone at the Culinary Institue for an appetizer sampler & glass of wine. So tasty and a nice mid-p.m. pick-me-up!

Lessons learned: Pace yourself! We wanted to see everything but found 3 wineries per day plus a leisurely lunch was perfect for us.

Go to the higher profile wineries or your "must do" when it opens (most often 10 am) - NO crowds, even on the week end!

Take the side roads! Beautiful country lanes and vistas. Enjoy!!
