We are visiting this Sunday. Everything fine after the earthquake?
we didnt notice any damage, we totally forgot about it until we left Napa
I have been back in the UK since beginning of July so have no additional information, but I do believe that Naked Wines who I visited in Napa Town are open.
My friend and I visited the weekend after the earthquake (August 28th for 3 days) and almost everything was fine. The lodge was fine, all the wineries open..etc. The only things that weren't open were some of the business in the immediate downtown area that are 'red tagged' (not open for being unsafe). If I understand that situation correctly it is not always because the business itself is unsafe, but often the buildings around it). In addition there were a couple of downtown streets closed for driving and you needed to detour.
We ate at Graces Kitchen (I think that was it) downtown and the food was very good. There was another bakery open and loaded with people. The Pear and Fish (darn can't think of the rest of the name) down near the river were open; we ate at the Pear and it was very good. The chop house was open, and that is downtown somewhere...and apparently packed because we couldn't get a reservation until 9pm one night. We also ate dinner at a place called Brix that was wonderful and just a little way up the Silverado trail, not far from Napa. I should tell you that we went on a holiday weekend, however I think places book up for dinner quickly so reservations are a good idea if you want to eat earlier. Also reservations for some of the more popular winery tours and food/wine pairings at the wineries are good to reserve. We were lucky to slide into a basic castle tour over at castello di Amarosa (?sp) and Chandon's tours were totally sold our.
Hope this helps
