Napa/Sonoma Winery Recommendations for this weekend? [Moved from Wine board]

I am in Napa and Sonoma until Monday evening to do some wine tasting. To give some idea of what I want, I am reasonably familiar with wine generally and drink it very regularly. I care most about tasting interesting, hard-to-get wines with vineyards who are welcoming and friendly. Especially given the holiday weekend, I want to avoid the ultra-corporate vineyards that will be very overcrowded (I like some of their wine fine, but I don't want to be somewhere massively overcrowded). I have a tasting scheduled at Corison tomorrow, but frankly that is at the absolute top end of my price range, and I will not be able to afford to taste or buy bottles at many places of that caliber.

I plan to do one full day in Napa and one full day in Sonoma.

I will be starting early each day but do not have much time (basically two days). Any recommendations would be appreciated.
