Napa is known for their wines but they also have a large number of delectable restaurants. Here are some option for different types of trips.

Wine Tasting

Stay at Best Western Stevenson Manor. If you just want a place to crash after drinking, this place is a deal. Yes, it’s totally a budget hotel but it has a clean bed, bathroom and a pool! Plus, they have free breakfast. Hire Heather (Mount View Shuttle) to drive you to all the wineries to avoid drinking and driving. You can contact her via email at or call (707) 942-6877.

Wineries in order departing from the Best Western:

  • Grgich Hills
  • Mumm
  • Oakville Grocery – Pick up lunch for later.
  • Silver Oak
  • Peju


    Winemaker’s Dinner

    Stay at the Napa River Inn. Walk 50 yards to Morimoto and join them for a Winemaker’s Dinner, if available. Otherwise, just make reservations and enjoy their fine dining. Then the next morning, sit outside overlooking the river and enjoy brunch at the Napa General Store.

    The Napa River Inn is a beautiful hotel that sits along the Napa River. Some of the rooms have their own fireplaces and if they have availability, they’ll upgrade your room so just ask. The rooms are super cute and you’ll feel like you’re in a little cozy Bed and Breakfast nestled in your country decorated room but you’re actually in a big hotel. They have rooms of every size including the basic, standard to the suite.

    Notable Place We’ll Have to Try Again

    CIA at Greystone was a disappointment. Most dishes were extremely salty and the menu lacked creativity. The service was horrible. One person in our party continually kept getting missed with both her drinks and food while our bottle of white wine sat on the counter beading up. Others were served their drinks and I guess the server forgot to open our bottle until he saw us finally go reach for it.
