Five Things to do in Downtown Napa
1 | Taste at Quilt & Co. – A one-of-a-kind tasting experience in the heart of downtown Napa. I highly recommend the Belle Glos single-vineyard California Pinot Noir tasting.
2 | Shop at First Street Napa – Be sure to leave extra room in your suitcase! First Street Napa is home to a ton of fun and unique shopping experiences.
3 | Jam at JaM Cellars – Visit JaM Cellars wine and music studio. That’s right, in addition to wine, you’ll find a classic vinyl collection, Rolling Stone Magazine clad walls, and weekly live music sets known as JaMSessions. Check out their site for the current music schedule.
4 | Explore Oxbow Public Market – The perfect gathering place for foodies! I’m talking 40,000 square feet of fresh food and wine. Hit up my favorite spots -> Hog Island Oyster Bar, Bar Lucia, Gott’s, and The Model Bakery.
5 | Eat at Morimoto – One of my favorite restaurants in the world! Please order the famous tuna tartare (below). You won’t regret it!
