Newton Vineyard The new vineyard tour of Newton's sustainably farmed property on Spring Mountain is epically beautiful. Wander through classical English gardens, ride around in a six-wheeler, then look out over all of Napa from beside Pino Solo (a lone pine at the peak of the estate), while tasting three of Newton's Bordeaux-style wines. At $85, it's expensive but still a great value. newtonvineyard.com
Sure, Napa has scores of world-class wineries. But if you go only for the Cabernet, you’ll miss the rest of what’s great about the valley. Chat up local vintners at a rockabilly diner that serves wine in mason jars, explore the world of Napa-Japan cuisine, and use a craft cocktail as a palate cleanser.
