    Somewhere you just have to go to say you've 'done it'. There are so many winery regions to visit around San Francisco and the Bay Area, but Napa is the most well known - as well as the most expensive on the whole. Definitely give Black Stallion a try, as well all the names you know like Mumm, Beringer, Sutter, Ménage a Trois and the like. I've heard Alpha Omega is pretty good and other smaller vineyards compare favourably.
    Maybe make a weekend of it - most places are open Saturdays and Sundays.

    We stayed at Andaz Napa while we were going on a trip here and although Gogobot does not have a profile for Andaz Napa yet, it was the best hotel stay I've ever had! Hands down. It's located in downtown Napa on the First street. I suggest staying there.

    Great place to unwind and relax. If you want to be in the country surrounded by scenic views of pretty hills and vineyards just for a while, Napa will do you some good. I especially liked checking out the Robert Mondavi, Beringer and Raymond wineries during my stay. These wineries combine both art and wine into the mix.

    I have nothing bad to say about Napa and Sonoma (except for the weekend traffic). Driving or riding a bike along the wineries is beautiful and romantic, and there are tons of world class restaurants. Definitely worth multiple weekend visits.

    Remember that you don't have to purchase your own, individual tasting at each winery. If you're going to be spending the day moving around the area with friends, don't each spend the $$ on a tasting fee at each stop; instead, just ask for one tasting and share what's poured. (This is especially important to note since you're not going to like every winery's offerings!) Another thing I'd recommend is watching the movie "Bottle Shock" before you go (if you haven't already seen it). It's a fun movie, and gives you the story of how Napa made it onto the global 'map' in terms of getting recognition from the French wine snobs who'd first discounted the wines being produced in California.

    Napa is a scenic series of wineries based an hour or so from the Bay Area. Wine lovers will have a feast with Napa. The selection of wine tastings are expansive and will ensure you'll have a fabulous time in Napa.

    When I think of Napa, I think of all of the opportunities to relax and relish en plein air. In the comfort of a winery, vineyard, or even a terrace you can enjoy a fine glass (or bottle) of wine over a tray of delicacies.

    Before scoping out your options, I would recommend stopping by the visitor's center downtown as they often have coupons on great deals.

    Definitely a wow place...

    We went there in a perfect blue-skied day, which make everything even more inspiring and breathtaking.

    If you are into wine and you are whiling to learn more about or just sit back and enjoy tasting them, this is the place to go. Very friendly people, great food options, landscapes that will keep you amazed... definitely a must go.

Description

In transition from its past as a leather-producing, prune-processing center, Napa is increasingly a tourist destination. A colorful past saw 49ers taking refuge from winter in the gold fields in the mid nineteenth century, and downtown flooded 27 times since 1862. The county seat, Napa sits in the middle of an important wine region, and is known for the fine food establishments that have grown up alongside the vines rather than the mining and industry of years past, while in recent years The Living River Project has made the city much safer from flooding. Twenty-five wineries in downtown Napa guarantee a pleasurable stroll through town, where you just may see Robert Redford, a part-time resident, doing the same, and the food at restaurants specializing in everything from Californian to French to Italian help to soak up the vino.
