Some call it Napa's hidden gem or best-kept secret, others might call it a beautiful assortment of the bizarre. But di Rosa is truly an outdoor sculpture garden in California wine country. More than 2,000 works from more than 800 artists are scattered across 217 gorgeous acres and inside di Rosa's Gatehouse Gallery. Travelers find that a visit to di Rosa is an ideal break from the multitude of winery tours.
And even if you're not into art, you'll still enjoy strolling the premises and the beautiful scenery. Past visitors say the garden is filled with eccentric and interesting pieces, commenting particularly on the house filled with artifacts from different time periods. Many also recommend taking a guided tour to be able to see more of the grounds and gain some context behind certain pieces.
Along Carneros Highway, di Rosa is open from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Admission is free, but there is a suggested $5 donation at the Gatehouse Gallery. Guided tours cost $12 to $15 and enable visitors to see the entire property. For more information, check out di Rosa's website.
