It's easy to write about the Napa Valley as a tourist destination, but just how useful is that information once you become an actual visitor? A list of high end hotels and restaurants is both fun to write and to read, but in my life it's not terribly useful. You see, I am a bit of a budget traveler, by necessity as well as choice. I travel frequently enough so that splurging on every meal would bust both my wallet and my gut.
So today, instead of listing the best of the best, I'm simply going to share my impressions from a recent visit with you. After a long day of tasting and writing—what you'll find me doing on most wine country visits—I prefer a relatively light, simple dinner and a comfortable place to sleep. That's it. It may not work for you, but it did for me and this is how I did it.
And just to be clear no one gave me any discounts or covered any cost for any of these recommendations; they were all out of pocket expenses.
