Early stages of planning Napa trip?

missy1974 | Jun 26, 2013 11:49 AM

Husband and I are making 1st Napa trip (from Mississippi) Sept. 30 to Oct 5th. I have learned that Napa is harder to plan than the family Disney World trip (if you done this you know that can be crazy). Have a list would love any input. I'm having trouble with what time and what winery to do in a day. Also still a little lost on restaurants for dinner and lunches. Would like at least one day to picnic, need best spots for this. Here is what I have so far:
Coming into Sanfran 9/30 staying in Mill Valley to hike Muir wood Forest.
10/1 Start early to Petaluma (just to see) then to Sonoma - Lunch LaSalette or The Girl & The Fig
On to Napa via Trinity Rd Far Niente res @ 3:00
staying in Napa city at Andaz
from there just a list of ideas could use help
restaurants:
Dinners
Grace's Table
Redd
Angele
? want to stay close to Napa for dinner

Lunches
Picnic one or two days (best place to get picnic DD or ?)
a lunch spot near Schramsberg ?
any other lunch ideas

wineries
Far Niente
Schramsberg
Frogs Leap
Rombauer
Artesa
Rutherford Hill (because I have been told get picnic spot but open to other ideas)
Pride
Duckhorn
Truchard
Etude
Plumpjack
Cakebread

Sorry so long any help very welcome.
Thank you
