Driving fro L.A. to Napa/Yontville

Hi,
We're going to be driving from LA to Napa/Yontville via the direct route. Is this a trip we can do in one day? Does anyone know how long it should take us?
Thanks!

Mainly driving on I 5 it should take about 6 hours. This will depend on traffic conditions and your own speed.

I'd allow at least 7-8 hours; you never know when you'll get stuck behind a long line of trucks on I5, and you'll surely want to stop along the way. I5 is the quickest route, but it's pretty dull. We usually break the trip at the Harris Ranch for lunch. If there's a long line for the restaurant, just eat in the bar area.

If you want a more interesting route, take Highway 101, which goes right through San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, and up north--the road east to Napa/Yountville is easy to find.

"TKays" advise is "right on"
If there is any way you can avoid the 680 section between 4PM & 6:30PM
you will save a lot of time and frustrating traffic. Commuter lanes require minimum of 3 prople in car.
Good luck
