Downtown Napa

A Wine Country First

There is more to Napa than just wine tasting! Welcome to the FIRST culinary walking tour in Wine Country, for those who know that California cuisine is just as sought after as its wine. This tour will delight your taste buds as you explore revitalized downtown Napa with fellow foodies. We’ll share the fascinating history of this beautiful riverfront town, one where celebrity chefs intermingle with organic farmers and boutique winemakers.

We’ll begin at the new Oxbow Market, where a seasonal bounty of California specialty foods and produce awaits you. Your tour will cross the Napa River and visit 19th century historic buildings that weathered Prohibition to showcase the latest trends in California food and wine. You’ll leave the tour with a carefully curated list of Wine Country restaurant recommendations and recipes for your next meal.

NOTE: Customers must be over 21 and bring valid id to participate in wine tastings.

Why Gourmet Walks?

Our Difference


“Excellent tour- this made me want to come back to the city of Napa - so much history, and so much to explore!”
- Erika, April 2014

“Husband and I got the food and wine walking tour of Napa as a gift. Fantastic! Our guide, Mary, was very knowledgeable, amiable and had a good rapport with the vendors. Great tour for learning about all the city of Napa has to offer. Highly recommend this!”
- Erika, March 2014

“Mary was a delight. She was knowledgeable and gave us an introduction to Napa that we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Additionally, this was an excellent marketing tool for the participating merchants. We have already returned to one of the participating shops and will very likely visit more before we leave Napa.”
- Grethe, Nov 2014
