How to spend a day in Napa… First rule, don’t be too ambitious; wine tasting is about taking your time and enjoy. Don’t try to hit as many wineries as possible.
Napa wineries are situated in different regions; you have Calistoga, St Helen, Rhuterford, Oakville, Yountville. I started my day ay Sterling Vineyard, in St Helen. You have to take a Cable car to get to the winery hence the amazing view of the vineyards that you will have once up there. The tour of the domaine will walk you through different tasting tables as well as quick look at their cave. They offer a great wine and lunch pairing that I recommend taking advantage of.
From there, get back to the main road and go toward Castello Di Amoroso. You will found a castle in the middle of vineyards. You can tour the castle and enjoy wine in the cave tunnels of the castle.
On the way back to the Bay area, you can stop at a final winery. I stopped at Domaine Carneros. It was nice to seat down outside in front of the vineyards and enjoy some wines. Their wines were amazing
