I am off for my twice a year trip to California for wining and fun. Earlier, I went to Santa Barbara (a first!) and had a great time. This time, I am back in the Napa/Sonoma area.

The twist: Flying into Sacramento, not SF, due to an amazing rate. I land at 11 am,
and so I intend on visiting Napa that day (Friday) to avoid the crowds. I'll visit Sonoma the other two days.

Any recommendations on places to visit on the way from Sacramento to Napa Valley? I always visit V. Sattui and St. Supery, which is on the main drag, but I was
hoping for some other places that I might pass on the way there.
