Long Weekend: Napa and Sonoma
Uncorking a few in the wine country
August 21, 2007
The Silverado Resort (707-257-0200) has a variety of options, including condos. In November, it offers a suite and two rounds of golf for $199. Rooms at the Fairmont (707-938-9000) are $450 and up.
Kunde Estate Winery & Vineyards (707-833-5501) or Chateau Montelena Winery (707-942-5105) are two of many that offer a snapshot of wine making ($5-$25 for tasting).
Downtown Joe's on Main Street in Napa is the kind of place where the bartender is your friend the minute you sit down. Also, try the Kobe burger sliders at the Grill at Silverado.
Fly into the San Francisco or Oakland international airport, then head north 60 to 90 minutes.
