Napa Day Trip Travel Guide

Jul 6, 2017


Living in SF, we're super lucky that Napa is just a short drive away, which makes a day trip totally doable. While there are so many different parts of wine country to explore (I love Healdsburg, Russian River, and Calistoga), Napa Valley's beautiful vineyards are the epitome of bougie wine tasting. Given its popularity, if you want to spend a day there and have a good time, you should absolutely make reservations at all of the wineries and restaurants you want to go to weeks in advance, and be prepared to pay for a tasting fee at all of the vineyards. Today I'm sharing some snaps from a recent cousins trip we did, plus an itinerary for a day well spent in Napa.


Goosecross Cellars. We started our day off at Goosecross and loved their beautiful outdoor seating (and their heavy pours).

Redd Wood. Redd Wood has amazing pizzas and is a really cute spot for lunch. Their delicious pizzas always hit the spot during a day of drinking. It's also where Omied took me out to dinner the night before he proposed. :) 

Bouchon Bakery. After pizza, walk over to Bouchon for one of their insanely delicious French pastries or macarons. Heaven.

James Cole Winery. This small tasting room has a relaxed vibe (and when we were there, lots of cute dogs!). When you make your reservation, ask if it's possible to reserve one of their outdoor couches.

Domaine Chandon. We ended the day with bubbly and champagne cocktails. Domaine Chandon has beautiful grounds that you can walk around and enjoy, and it's definitely a must-do if you haven't visited it in Napa before.

That was our lovely day trip to Napa, but I know there are sooo many other delicious wineries! Omied and I will probably be spending a weekend there soon so I'll definitely be creating another guide for an extended weekend trip. Do you have any recs for wineries we shouldn't miss next time we're there?
