Best Big Name winery and Oakland lunch help

PHXeater | Sep 21, 2012 10:49 AM

Planning a trip to Napa/Sonoma and my SO really wants to go to a couple of the "big" producers despite my discouragement of the idea. What would you recommend for the best standard Napa spot with big cabs? Opus One, Silver Oak? We're planning to do this place first and do a full tour, etc. to kind of kick off the trip. I'd like to go somewhere that has bottles under $75 because I'm sure he'll insist on buying one.

Also, we'll be arriving to Oakland airport at 11:30 then driving to Napa wineries and want to grab lunch either in Oakland or on the way. Somewhere relatively fast as we're going to try to hit 3 wineries that afternoon before driving on to stay in Healdsburg.

Thanks for the help!
