Gateway Dinner to Wine Country

Need help for a family reunion of sorts. (just 4 of us)

I live in L.A. and am a bit of an aspiring chef. My dad lives in Washington D.C. and used to manage a winery. (I was surprised to find that Virginia wine could be quite good) I haven't seen him in almost 10 years. It'll be my first time meeting his new wife and his first time meeting my girlfriend.

We're going to meet up in San Francisco the first week of July and then venture up to Napa/Sonoma.

Any recommendations for the perfect restaurant in the Bay Area to show off California Cuisine and launch our trip to wine country? Price is not a concern nor is location.

I could also use suggestions for wine bars. ;-)

I was thinking Chez Panisse and maybe Vino Venue (Mission & 3rd). Let me know what you think!
