Napa Valley is the center of American viticulture. It is also home to world-class restaurants. However, due to a long-standing ordinance, the two do not mix – until now.

No matter where you look on Highway 29 in Napa Valley you will see museum-like wineries – sprawling structures with manicured lawns adorned with million dollar works of art – nestled among endless acres of vines. Pull in to any one of them and find yourself in a gorgeous tasting room bustling with activity, a sea of bottles lining the walls and standing room-only tasting bars. But unless you eat before you get to the winery, you’ll be tasting on an empty stomach.
