First time to Napa- Itinerary so far... please help!

My girlfriend and I are heading to Napa for a weekend for the first time and I'd like your help!

I've done a bunch of reading on here so far, tons of great information, maybe too much. Based on what I've read, and suggestions from friends and family, this is what we have so far, would appreciate any advice.

-Get into town around 3:30-4pm, Staying at Marriott in Napa
-Kick around town until dinner at Ad Hoc (so pumped!)
-Bar for drinks in Napa.. any suggestions?

General plan is to start up in St Helena and work our way back towards the hotel. Not sure how we're traveling, maybe get a limo or van? Any thoughts here?
-10am tour and tasting at Pride Mountain Winery
-Lunch somewhere near St. Helena... Any advice?
-1pm and on, head down the Silverado trail. possible stops include: Frog's Leap, Sinesky, Stag's Leap, Pine Ridge. Any thoughts on these, or other can't miss or must avoid stops? Especially interested in wineries that have tastings or tours on the cheaper side.
-Dinner. TBD. Favorite spots in downtown Napa area? what about BYOB?

What's an appropriate number of wineries to visit? i was thinking of touring 1-2 and tasting at 2-3 more.

Any all advice is greatly appreciated!
