Not sure if you’re into wine tasting. You’ll need an appointment to do so. I recommend:


It’s only about 7 miles from Riverpointe (we call it Candyland due to the different colored trailers).

I like Bounty Hunter BBQ in town.

California is mostly in the worst tier right now so expect limited access. [political/deleted]

We dined outside at Oenotri two weeks ago. It’s in downtown Napa. The 2008 Burgess Merlot on their wine list was wonderful and a good value IMO. We liked it so much we went back six nights later.

The Culinary Institute at Copia is doing dinners Friday thru Sunday. We had a nice dinner there too.

You can make reservations at both and I recommend it.

Our unit at Riverpointe was very cold overnight. We had to turn the heater way down because it blasted the bedroom area.

I thought it sounded like California was shutting down pretty much again. Curfews in some counties, no indoor dining again. I'd do some careful checking.

This article seemed to have some good information about which counties are affected (Napa being among them).

Many businesses will be ignoring the current rule. Just be prepared to do the mask drill.

Keep social media posts to a minimum and enjoy.

Thanks all, for advice and suggestions!

We will check them out. We plan to rent electric bikes, and have made a reservation for wine tasting at Foley Johnson, where we are a member. They said we could make reservations for every day and taste free!

We plan to eat and wine-taste outdoors or do take out. It seems the smart thing to do. The curfew won't bother us, at all. We will be snuggled up by 10 pm anyway, because we are early birds!
