Napa Valley Vineyards. What vineyards would recommend for a 2 day tour through Napa Valley?

Recently spent a weekend in Napa Valley and stayed at the Village Inn in Yountville. Went to Duckhorn Vineyard, Rutherford and Darioush. Wasn't overly impressed with any of them. What would you your recommendations be for some good quaint vineyards in Napa.

Duckhorn Vineyards
1000 Lodi Ln St, Helena, CA

Village Inn Cafe
204 Village Sq, Orinda, CA 94563

  1. What does quaint specifically mean to you? Small, boutique, artisan, what?

    Another way to approach finding wineries that are a good fit for you, would be to ask, What are your favorite varietals?

    Finally, the SF Bay Area boards are loaded with Napa Valley winery recommendations.
    Read those first and ask some followup questions.

    1. Better to start with: are there specific wines or styles you do like?
