So that's a quick rundown of the highlights of my lowbrow trip. I love that you can get such great experiences without busting the bank in Napa Valley and I would love to hear from you guys about all the places I've missed.
And for those of you who just won't be able to bring themselves to wolf down a Squeeze Inn burger while sitting at a picnic bench in a shopping center's parking lot, one last bone. If you want to splurge and take advantage of the best of Napa Valley, don't miss Press Restaurant. It has one of the the best back vintage selections of Napa Valley wines anywhere in the world. Prices are ambitious at times, but you can still find great deals such as a 1978 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet ($275), a 1985 Clos du Val Stag's Leap Cabernet ($175), the 1987 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet ($275), and the 1984 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet ($115), along with many other great values on the list and any of the vintages of Ritchie Creek, which range from 1983-2007 ($175 to $80)!
