Napa and Sonoma Wineries itinerary + restaurant help for foodies

First and foremost, I'd like to thank this board for the wealth of information and advice provided. It is invaluable.

My husband and I will be travelling to Napa for the first time at the beginning of September. Although we can definitely appreciate a fine bottle of wine, we are by no means wine experts. We'll be staying in Napa for 2 full days (Marriott) and were hoping to spend one day in Napa and one day in Sonoma. We don't like to rush through many wineries and would also like to have a nice lunch in one of the wineries. So far the plan is as follows:
Day 1 - Napa
Breakfast at Auberge du Soleil
Chimney Rock

From the above list, what would be your recommendations re order of visit and which wineries we should eliminate? We do like Zins and Pinots. Also looking for nice views and scenery. Which winery would be best suited for lunch?

Day 2 - Sonoma
Where should we have breakfast?
Gary Farrell

Same questions as for day 1.

With regards to dinner reservations, we decided to forego the FL. Made reservation at Meadowood for one of the nights. Need to accomodate 2 more nights - what would be your recommendations? Looked in Redd, Ad Hoc etc.

Thank you in advance!
