Napa / Sonoma Trip Next Week

bascher | Jan 13, 2009 03:29 PM

My wife and I are planning on spending this weekend (Friday 1/16 PM - Monday 1/19PM) in Napa / Sonoma and were wondering if people had any thoughts / suggestions on our tentative itinerary (below). We love wine and food (which is why we are going!). It is our first time in the region.

Day 1 (Napa)
We have a car driving us around this day, so will be mostly be wine focused
Lunch @ Brannan's Grill
Chateau Montelena
Rombauer and /or Rubicon as time permits
Dinner @ Brix

Day 2 (Sonoma)
We are driving around, so will do some wine tasting and some other exploring of the area (any suggestions on other non-wine activities in the Sonoma area?)
Family Wineries (Kenwood)
Gloria Ferrer
Dinner @ Bouchon

Day 3 (Napa)
Again, us driving around. This day we can hit up additional wineries that we did not go to on day one, plus explore Napa a bit more.
Maybe Sinskey
Maybe Vintners Collective
Lunch @ Taylor's Refresher
Dinner @ Zuzu

Do you think we are leaving any wineries off of the list? Are we focusing too muych on one type? We wanted to visit some smaller ones and not so much the commercial large ones. Any thoughts or suggestiong would be great.
