Best Things to Do in Napa Valley

People come to Napa Valley to taste the grapes -- plain and simple. With several hundred wineries to sample from and tour, you'll have to be selective. Large producers like the Robert Mondavi Winery draw big crowds with their name recognition. However, more intimate properties like the O'Brien Estate might be more enjoyable for you if you like personal attention and customized tours. When you tire of wine-tastings, di Rosa, an open-air art preserve, is a refreshing option.
