Other foodie things to do besides wine tasting

I'm taking a trip to Napa with a group of foodaholic friends, however, two of them don't drink, so I'd like to figure in some Napa food experiences into the trip that don't involve wine tasting.

    Napa's not just about wine tasting; there are a ton of other amazing food experiences to be had!


    Besides tastings, there are a ton of great restaurants, too. Yountville is where you want to be for that. Acclaimed chef Thomas Keller actually has three restaurants there. Here's a list of Yountville suggestions with his three restaurants listed first:

      Thanks so much, Devora. I've never thought to taste Olive Oil, but of course Napa would have it! All the other places sound fantastic, too. Looks like we're not going to have a shortage of things to do after all! · (0 likelikes)

    Last time we were in Napa we went to the Meadowood for croquet, followed by dinner at the restaurant. This is a great inn and resort with a few croquet fields. After a day of wine tasting (or, as an alternative), you can put on whites, play some croquet, eat wine and cheese, then have dinner in The Restaurant At Meadowood, which is out of this world.

    Meadowood has all the croquet equipment, plus a croquet pro who can give you lessons. You definitely have to set it up in advance. Its not a show up and rent kind of thing. Reservations would be necessary. Also, Bon Appetit recently named the restaurant at Meadowood #2 on its list of America's Most Important Restaurants, so you'll want to have a reservation if you want to eat there.

      Thanks for recommendation, Brew! I've never played croquet before, but that sounds like fun. Can you just rent equipment right there? It sounds like we could have an entire day there! · (0 likelikes)

    Definitely do the olive oil tasting at Round Pond. I never thought I'd enjoy tasting oil, but I'm glad that my friends dragged me. I learned way more about olive oil than I ever thought was possible and it was fun, not to mention tasty. We left with a few bottles of their infused olive oil.

      Never heard of an olive oil tasting till now! Sounds like something we'll definitely have to check out. Thanks, Sunil! · (0 likelikes)

    With great wine comes great food, so you're not going to be at a loss for food experiences in the Napa area! There are so many great, well-known restaurants that aren't overrated. I would say that the two most famous are The French Laundry and Morimoto. They cost a pretty penny, but are totally worth it if you all are foodies!
