Join us for a tour through Solano county’s Wooden Valley into Napa County and up to Lake Berryessa, through Pope Valley and Angwin and into the Napa Valley where we will lunch at Gott’s Roadside.

Staring at the Costco in Fairfield we will travel through Wooden Valley and over the backroads to Lake Berryessa’s Dufer Point Visitor Center. At Dufer point we’ll have a restroom break and then enjoy a ranger led discussion of Lake Beryessa and the surrounding area’s history.

We will continue along Lake Berryessa’s western edge crossing the Knoxville Pope Canyon Bridge before heading west through beautiful Pope Valley. Departing Pope Valley we will climb over Howell Mountain. You’ll notice the trees change from scrub Oaks at the lower elevation to a forest of cool green filled with Redwood trees.

At the top of Howell Mountain we will pass through the city of Angwin, before heading down into the Napa Valley. Upon entering Napa Valley we will head north along the Silverado Trail to Calistoga’s Lincoln Ave. We will pass down the main drag of Calistoga before turning south on Highway 29.

We will stop at the “Welcome to The Napa Valley” sign between Calistoga and St. Helena for group and individual pictures before continuing south on highway 29 to our destination Gott’s Roadside. Gott’s is a popular roadside eatery with a diverse menu that includes vegetarian options. They have something for everyone. Lunch at Gott’s is out of pocket. Parking is available in the Gott’s lot as well as a lot on the corner of 29 and Charter Oak Ave. which is adjacent to Gott’s.

The tour will end at Gott’s so that if you desire you can make plans to visit one of the many wineries for an afternoon tasting. Be sure to make reservations, since COVID most wineries will not accept walk-ins. You can also opt to spend the night in the Napa Valley. One good and budget friendly choice is the Calistoga Inn, book early because their rooms go fast. There are many other hotel choices, as well as Airbnb and VRBO options.
