Disclaimer: Yes, I've spent a lot of time reading Chowhound's numerous posts on this topic & gleaned lots of useful info.

Its my first trip to Napa as a person of legal drinking age =)
We'll only have one day, or a day and a half at most. Staying at my aunt's house - which I'm told is 5 minutes away from Bistro Don Giovanni. Leading me into...

Dinner choices. I've read lots of positive reviews about Bistro Don Giovanni. My parents & relatives always take my aunt out to eat here, I think because of the proximity to her house. I like the idea of taking her somewhere new... would Zuzu be appropriate for a 70 year old woman? Caveats: I don't want to wander too far away from her home; no French bistro places. Any suggestions?

Winery choices. Here's my (ambitious) list: Artesa, Cliff Lede, Miner, Robert Sinskey, Trefethen. My husband wants to visit COPIA also, so I don't expect to be able to hit all these places in one our time span - but it was hard to whittle! Comments?
