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.

Our Difference


“We had a really great time with our guide Mary....turned out that we ended up with her as the only guests for the tour. Not only was the overall food tasting experience great, but Mary happened to be a History teacher and shared with us a wealth of knowledge regarding Napa. We would highly recommend this tour and our guide Mary!”

“We had a terrific experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Napa as well as the local businesses and restaurants. She was very thoughtful and fun to be with. I would take the tour again in a heart beat.”
