"Dos Lagos Vineyard and home is the best stay to truly understand the Wine Country story!
The ride on Atlas Peak Road ( from Silverado CC) is relaxing, eventful and enjoyable. It’s a plus!
The home was in most satisfactory condition:
• Beds were well made, totally comfortable,
• Bathrooms, clean, neat + soap, tp, etc all convenient and sufficient
• Kitchen: Milk, butter, water, olive oil, coffee were all pluses.
• Pool & outside areas: Clean, neat, and superb morning swim
• Vineyards: A joy to walk through. Wild blackberries were “stolen” and added to morning cereal. Yummy!
• Golf: Silverado: Always enjoyable. The Napa Public Kennedy Course (just shy of town) at $45 is a winner for it is a challenging course, adequately maintained golf course set up among lakes and streams in lower Napa.
• Food: We took advantage of Silverado’s Brut & Bird Thursday night special for two @ $45: It was superb. Marvelous citrus salad, succulent broasted chicken, freshly mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw & kale veggie plus a split of Domaine Chandon each.
o Genova Delicatessen: So good to find still operating! Sandwiches & salads are superbly prepared. Same old style people behind the counter as 30 years ago in Oakland & SF
o Ristorante Allegria: Excellent pappardelle con fungi! My linguini con vongole e marinara was quite good. Would go again.
o Bodega Bay Oysters: On Valley Ford Rd, was enjoyable. Good selection & so fresh. We picnicked under the trees on their tree filled grounds.
o Occidental’s Neri Restaurant is still going strong: Home baked pastries, bread galore and their ravioli’s have always been so good with chard, meats and a dough that floats to the heavens.
o Tasca Tasca: Sonoma’s Portuguese tapa style bar restaurant was enjoyable with a good selection of old world wine and beer plus Azorean specialties. Manuel Azevedo (La Sallette) owns this new restaurant also.
o Pat’s Runway: It’s not Jonesy's menu, but they still do have Jonesy's potatoes.
• Aside from the delicious Dos Lagos Cab (a bottle provided), Luna’s was enjoyable with a Sunday guitar jazz player.
• Chimney Rock was over the top with Tom Price being our server and guide into the vineyard and grounds.
• Hess & art exhibits: Interesting. Passed on Stag's Leap @ $65 pp tasting!"
