There are countless hip, fabulous restaurants, lounges, and bars throughout Napa Valley. On the top of my list is the wraparound deck at Auberge du Soleil, where more than 40 wines are offered by the glass–not to mention the absolutely breathtaking views of the valley.
I cannot live without grabbing coffee and delectable pastries at Bouchon in Yountville, California. Reddwood, Bottega, and R&D Kitchen are perfect spots for cocktails. PRESS and Goose & Gander are two of my favorite destinations in St. Helena.
While I love entertaining in both my St. Helena and Sonoma Valley homes, Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley is one of the most fabulous art, design, and wine galleries I have ever been to and a great venue for a party and wine tasting! I love Nickel & Nickel in Oakville for food and wine events, and Quintessa in the heart of the Napa Valley is incredible for group tastings or private parties.
