For a unique viewpoint of Napa Valley (in more ways than one) take the drive to Smith-Madrone Winery perched high atop Spring Mountain. Stuart and Charlie Smith have been up there since the early 70s crafting wine the way they feel it should be made. Their style hasn’t always been in favor but as tastes have changed they’ve become fashionable again.
