Hi Arwinst75,

In my opinion, the best way to see the Valley is to drive yourself. If you take a tour bus, you go where they want and you cannot just stop in a winery that looks good.

Driving in Napa Valley is easy. There are two main highways, Hwy 29 and the Silverado Trail which run parallel to each other. Then, there are crossroads with wineries on them running between the two. If you want, you can take Hwy 12 over to Sonoma.

If you haven't found it, there is a good map on this website at http://napavalley.com/visitorsinfo/Napa_Valley_Winery_Map.pdf If a winery has a black dot beside it, it is open for walk ins . . . if it has a triangle, it requires an appointment . . . but not always. Clif Lede and Robert Sinskey both have triangles, but that is just for groups of 8 or more.

If you were going on a weekend, I would suggest making your appointments and visits making right hand turns on the highway, negating turning in front of traffic. During the week, you should not have too much of a problem with traffic.

Hope this helps.

What is the best way to hop from one winery to the next? I'm trying to plan my week and itinerary for each day. Is it best to visit wineries in one or two regions, ex Rutherford ans St Helena? Or travel up and down the main highways, ex Silverado Trail and Hwy 29? Which is easier and more efficient?
