Weekend Tour in Napa

I'm hoping to organize a lovely tour through Napa with my father, but I need help with where to get started.

I was hoping to make it a weekend trip (so maybe we could take in more than just Napa). Camping is possible, but not necessary, we may just try to stay a some little inns along the way.

But what I really need help with is the route. Has anyone ever done a tour through Napa before? Where did you start, where did you end? Any suggestions and what routes to take and what routes not to take? Where did you stay?

I've found some good web-sites -- but I'm wondering if anyone has advice/little known secrets from personal experience.

I'd love to hear any and all suggestions.

Thanks
jw

I'd suggest posting in the NorCal forum, and getting a Krebs map of the area.

It's been too long since I've been there for me to offer anything really useful. Calistoga is a cute town. Try to tour on weekdays, I find the wine tasting traffic a bit scary, personally, on the weekends. (hey, let's drive around and drink wine..... huh?)
