Wine and beer bar with small bites. This place is packed before the dinner rush and late night. Very popular with locals, especially those in the wine business. Chances are, you'll be rubbing elbows with a winemaker or two (they'll probably be drinking beer). Very friendly, knowledgable staff. Occasional DJs for late night music.

The setting is a Craftsman style building with a wrap-around deck looking out on the vineyard. Just north of the town of St. Helena, this is one of the most respected Merlot houses. Dan Duckhorn sold the label nearly a decade ago, yet the winery continues to make good wines. Go for their single vineyard Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon. You can also sample Goldeneye, their Pinot Noir label from Anderson Valley.
