After Castello di Amorosa, we decided to have a picnic lunch at the V. Sattui Winery, the 2011 Winery of the Year which is owned by Dario Sattui (same owner of the Tuscan Castle).
They are known not only for their pioneering wines that they were making since 1885 but also for the V. Sattui's famous Cheese Shop and Deli :)
Unfortunately, the soft cheeses won't be able to travel well back to Manila as a pasalubong.
I also tried the Ravioli and Gnocchi Marinara Pastas, unfortunately they are not good -- maybe because the pasta was not fresh and there is something different in the way they prepared the marinara sauce.
$5 Classic Tasting - Up to 5 of our most popular wines
$10 Premium Tasting - Up to 6 of our vintage and estate wines.

Either you assign one person from your group to reserve the tables while the others buy food in the deli or bring your own picnic cloth where you can just sit and eat easy in the grassy area.

Live an Awesome Life,
Full Disclosure: We paid for our meals. We are not connected in any way to the owners or PR company promoting this restaurant.
P.S. We just tried two wineries, and then checked out Dean and Deluca. Afterwards, the ladies decided to go on shopping for hours in the Napa Valley Premium Outlet which is on the way back to San Francisco. Let me know if you have more Napa Valley tips for first timers.
