Lunch spots with good wine lists in Napa or Sonoma?

jinksdc | Jun 14, 2013 07:20 AM

My husband and I are heading out to Napa and Sonoma in July for the first time and I am looking for some good lunch suggestions. We have dinner reservations at Redd's and Ad Hoc. And we are visiting a couple of wineries of which we are members. A friend suggested though that the better day time "tasting" experience is often to go to a good lunch and just drink off the local wine lists. So I am interested in some suggestions for places that could be good for lunch with good wine lists, especially wines by the glass (it is lunch time after all.) Since we are staying in Yountville and having dinner in Yountville, I'd love thoughts on places outside of that town so we can get out and see some other areas. Happy to drive to Sonoma as well.

I have looked at the threads I saw here recently and seen great recommendations for food (you guys gave me Redd's! But also looking at Goose and Gander, Farmhouse, Backyard, Cafe Lucia) but haven't seen too much on the wine lists specifically. Or maybe this is a dumb question bc it's Napa/Sonoma and all the wine lists are excellent. (If that's the answer, break it to me gently.) Thanks for the suggestions!
