My wife and I are taking a day trip from SF to Napa and we'd welcome any good recommendations for a couple good tasting locations between St. Helena and Rutherford that won't require reservations this Friday. Here's our plan so far, but have so many blanks for fill!
10AM – land in Oakland and rent a car to drive straight to Napa Valley (I’m assuming we can be in NV around 11:30ish)
Noon-1PM – Domaine Chandon for a tasting
1:30-2:30 – Lunch in St. Helena (any recommendations??)
2:30-3:00 – Need run a quick errand in St. Helena (Napa Valley Soap Co.)
3:00-4:00 – Any recommendations for a good red??
4:15-5:15 – Any recommendations for a good white?
We’ll probably want to head back to SF after the 3rd tasting and check into our hotel.
Any help you can provide will be appreciated!!
