My boyfriend and I will be in San Francisco in July and are planning on heading to Napa for the greater part of a day and a night. Since our time there is limited, I'm trying to figure out the best itinerary for us that will allow us to freely sample wines and get from place to place safely.
I've hear about services that run wine trips- taking you from vineyard to vineyard over the course of a day, usually with a lunch. Are these worthwhile or are we better off focusing on one or two vineyards? Since we haven't been before, I would like to take a tour but I also don't want to feel as though I have had a generic- cookie cutter experience if there are more exciting possibilities available. From what I have read on this board, Mondavi is a good place for novices.
And of course, always open to recommendations of restaurants in the area.
Thanks so much!
