    How about Dry Creek Canyon General Store in Sonoma? Loads of character

    These top 10s are all great but honestly, this is tip of the iceberg. SO MANY tasting venues, touring packages, restaurants, B&Bs & hotels, vineyard tours in Napa & Sonoma. Hundreds. So many and so little time. What an amazing place to live and work.

    Bad fact checking — Domain Chandon opened Etoile restaurant much earlier (I first ate there in 1977 and it had been open a while) . Etoile is fine dining – it has a Michelin star.

    Another bad fact: The writer must not have visited Auberge du Soleil because it is far from the top of the peak, it is only a short ways up the hill, It does have a nice view though, and is a very luxurious resort.

    Most people living and visiting Napa Valley would put the Oakville Grocery on the top 10 list. The Wine Train is a unique thing to do in Napa Valley so deserves to be on the list. Most of the rest of the list do not stand out from the many great places to visit.

    Are you kidding? The wine train? Total tourist trap!!
