I personally liked the Stuffed Portobello with Sausage & Cheese (middle of the photo)
Make sure to buy some Oven Roasted Garlics. Yum!
The Sicilian Style Olives were really appetizing.
The Mac & Cheese pasta and the Tri-Tip Beef sandwich were good.
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.
You can try the V. Sattui wines in the adjacent main tasting rooms for:
$5 Classic Tasting – Up to 5 of our most popular wines $10 Premium Tasting – Up to 6 of our vintage and estate wines.
The best part of the experience was having a Napa picnic lunch under the big oak trees 🙂
This is a popular hang out place in Napa for lunch. The tables are for free but on a first come first serve basis.
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.
On weekends, they sometimes have a special Barbecue Lunch 🙂
We decided to buy breads,salads, pastas, and sandwiches from the deli which were served in eco-friendly containers.
Of course, the experience is not complete without a cheese platter and a bottle of the award winning V. Sattui Cabernet Sauvignon wine.
This Napa picnic was a truly awesome experience! I’m inspired to recreate it here in Manila 🙂
Tessa was always in style with her Napa Valley picnic outfit 🙂
Thanks to Amor, Cheryl and Tessa for making this a memorable Napa Valley picnic experience!
Overall, V. Sattui Picnic experience is highly recommended for lunch or merienda in Napa Valley.

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.
