9:30 a.m.
Made-from-scratch cinnamon rolls and 
breakfast cakes are a must at Ciccio. 
Savory lovers should try the salmon toast.

10:30 a.m.
Learn a new party trick, and take a swing at 
the art of bottle sabering at V Wine Cellar, 
where you’ll wield your own sword under 
the watchful eye of a trained sommelier.

12:30 p.m.
Olive oil is the new wine with tastings, lunch, and a tour of the olive groves at Round Pond Estate.

3:30 p.m.
New from PlumpJack, Odette Estate is an airy, 
modern take on the ranch-style winery with a 
tasting room nestled against the palisades of Stags 
Leap. Later this year, taste the inaugural vintage 
of Odette’s 2012 Chardonnay. Time your visit 
to take advantage of evening drive-in movies. 

6:30 p.m.
Snag a spot on the pier at Lake Hennessey to 
watch the sunset. On the way, pick up a snack of 
mortadella, Mexican chorizo, and house-made pickled veggies from Fatted Calf at Oxbow Public Market.

8:30 p.m.
Feast on Napa Valley’s best pizza at Redd Wood, the new laid-back sister to Richard Reddington’s Michelin-starred Redd, where black tufted leather booths set a posh vibe.

7x7 Editors’ Pick
Stay the night in the Erin Martin-designed North Block Hotel, a minimalist boutique property that opened in the former Hotel Luca space last year.
