Housed in Napa’s historic Old Adobe and named for a Mexican slang term for beer, La Cheve Bakery and Brews puts as much heart into its local craft beer selection as bakery matriarch Momma Juana puts into her incredible, scratch-made Mexican pastries. (Try the daily pastry-and-beer matchup!) The café also offers flavorful tortas and tacos, plus house-made brews and a compact wine list that highlights local Hispanic winemakers.

There’s a reason why this stunning estate is so popular amongst visitors — Domaine Carneros is home to the most majestic château in Napa Valley. Inspired by the 18th century Château de la Marquetterie in Champagne, France, guests are invited to enjoy their sparkling and still wines in the Louis XV-inspired salon or on the terrace overlooking the vines while contemplating what it must feel like to be born into French royalty. This place always comes up on a top 10 search for Napa Valley for a reason!

The moment you arrive to the palm-lined driveway of this beautiful Rutherford estate, you know you’re in for a treat. Inspired by Old World Italian hospitality, most of Round Pond’s tasting experiences take place outside on the inviting covered terrace overlooking the vines, where estate-grown wines are accompanied by small bites prepared with ingredients grown on-site, including their estate-made olive oil. Reservations recommended. The wine tasting prices are a bit higher here.
