Hungry in Napa Valley? St. Helena wineries are replacing fussy tasting menus with accessible food to complement their best pours. The result: next-level wine pairings.
Here, three of our best picks.
Burger Butler, Merryvale
After a private winery tour with barrel tastings, visitors to Merryvale can try the wines with burgers from iconic Gott's Roadside. Our favorites: the Wisconsin sourdough and the blue cheese. merryvale.com
Bruschetteria, Clif Family Winery
The bright-green food truck (right) parked outside Clif's Velo Vino tasting room serves superfresh grain salads and porchetta bruschetta. Bonus: warm chocolate chip hazelnut cookies with Jacobsen sea salt. cliffamilywinery.com
Pizza On The Lawn, Charles Krug
The landmarked 155-year-old property doubles as a pizza joint on weekends, when its Redwood Cellar tasting room serves pies from a wood-fired oven. charleskrug.com
