Fodor's Expert Review di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art

Napa Museum/Gallery

The late Rene di Rosa assembled an extensive collection of artworks created by Northern California artists from the 1960s to the present, displaying them on this 217-acre Carneros District property surrounded by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards. Two galleries at opposite ends of a 35-acre lake show works from the collection and host temporary exhibitions, and the Sculpture Meadow behind the second gallery holds a few dozen large outdoor pieces. As 2019 dawned, di Rosa's residence, previously a highlight of a visit here, remained closed as conservation efforts continued to restore artworks damaged by smoke during the Wine Country's October 2017 wildfires. Docent-led tours take place daily at 11 and 1.
