Napa Valley is known all over the world for fantastic wine, but good wine is even better with good food. All the things that make Napa a wonderful place for growing grapes and making wine, make Napa a dream come true for foodies everywhere. Next time you’re in the Napa area, try one of these yummy and unique dishes:


Do you want pizza for breakfast? You’re on vacation so you might as well indulge yourself. Visit Auberge du Soleil for a delicious breakfast pizza made with eggs and smoked salmon.


Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring or pricey. Visit Fatted Calf at Oxbow Market to try a yummy Tomato Panzanella with roasted peppers, basil, buratta, and more.


Visit the Clif Family Winery and finish off your trip with delicious and creative nut mixes. Pair a recommended wine with a toasted coconut and cashew mix or paprika almonds.


If you’re looking for a meal that incorporates many of the fresh ingredients that make Napa Valley special, try the Tuscan Black Kale and Ricotta Agnolotti at Solage Calistoga. This meal incorporates apples, Brussels sprouts, and toasted walnuts to give you a taste of many of the delightful things Napa has to offer.


If you’re looking for something more interesting than chocolate cake for dessert, stay at Solage Calistoga after your dinner and try out the carefully selected local cheeses on the dessert menu. Cheese will be served with fresh fruit, spiced nuts, and honey, and can be paired with wine to round out your meal.
Good wine deserves good food. Try out the unique eats above or share your own suggestions for delicious Napa Valley meals.
