I was delighted to have a roadmap for a $20 day in Napa - three meals, wine and a nature walk. I read the article twice to verify the calculations! The second best part of the story is that these carefully selected destinations capture the rich variety of the Valley beyond the well-worn pricey path. The essence is much closer to its day-to-day heartbeat and the entrepreneurial substance and imagination by the people who are living in its communities and making Napa "Napa" - from the inside out.
As an added value, tag The Press from the San Francisco Chronicle in your travel planner as an ample resource for Wine Country experiences and insights.
