just came back from napa.....


i just came back from napa. i stayed at the terrace river inn...it was very nice and clean. we went on two very great winery tours.....del dotto (napa) and shramsberg(calistoga). i went to dean and deluca for lunch....excellent deli...so much to choose from cheeses, meats, and desserts. for dinner don giovannis bistro (napa), terra (st. helena), budo (napa). terra restaurant was wonderful. i had the veal cheeks and it was delicious!! budo restaurant was quite expensive, but good! don giovannis was excellent! i had such a wonderful time. it is so beautiful!

Del Dotto and Schramsberg are favorites of our guests. You went to some great restaurants, and delis.

On your next trip, you may want to stop at the historic Oakville Grocery, on Hwy 29. While not as large as Dean & Deluca, it has a very special selection of olive oils, meats and cheeses. It's a favorite spot for many of us local "foodies".

Mondavi has the best technical tour in the valley, so you may also want to consider this for your next trip (don't bother with just a tasting there, though-- it's much too impersonal and like an assembly line).

Restaurants in the wine country can change overnight as a new chef comes on, or one leaves. It often helps to talk to a local right before you visit (or read the latest TripAdvisor restaurant reviews), so you can see what's hot (and what's not!).

We hope you can make it back to visit our beautiful Valley soon.
