Best Napa Valley Wineries and Tasting Rooms for Fun and Unique Experiences

From a retro gas station to a music studio, here are a few spots that offer exceptional tasting experiences.

Compared to laidback Sonoma County, Napa Valley is sometimes perceived as a little pretentious or snooty (as parodied in Amy Poehler’s Wine Country movie). But while you may come across snobby restaurant- or tasting room staff here and there, many local businesses are now trying to change the Napa narrative by creating fun and unique experiences. For a taste of this more casual and easygoing version of the famous winegrowing region, we’ve lined up 12 wineries that offer something a little different to visitors. Click through the above gallery for details.

Editor’s Note: Travel, dining and wine tasting can be complicated right now. Use our inspirational ideas to plan ahead for your next outing, be it this week or next year. If you visit restaurants, wineries, and other businesses during the pandemic, remember to call ahead, make reservations, wear a mask and social distance.
