Find Serenity on the Silverado Trail

Elaine Chukan Brown | September 15, 2014 | Story Wine and Spirits

Though it’s hardly undiscovered, the scenic drive along Napa's eastern edge offers a respite from the snarls of Highway 29, along with some new attractions:

Gavin Newsom’s Odette Estate is celebrating its first harvest in its new LEED-certified winery space. It offers a self-guided tour of the facilities and green roof. 5998 Silverado Trail, Napa, 707-224-7533

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars’ Fay Outlook & Visitor Center showcases the winery’s two estate vineyards. In October, the winery will begin offering an in-depth Fire & Water tasting. 5766 Silverado Trail (Near Wapoo Hill Rd.), Napa, 707-944-2020

Quintessa offers intimate tastings that are limited to 12 people, including a tasting in the vineyard. 1601 Silverardo Trail (Near Rutherford Hill Rd.), St. Helena, 707-286-2730


Drink With the Pros: A new industry clubhouse.

Stomp the Hell out of Some Grapes: Tap your inner Lucy.
