Tank Garage Winery

If you’re up for drinking cool California wines with cool Calistoga people, head to this restored 1930s gas station for your daily dose of lubrication. Challenge your pals to a pinball showdown and enjoy a casual tasting at the bar (wines are also available by the glass). Insider tip: When it gets hot In the summer months you can chill out at Tank with homemade rosé popsicles.

Gamling & McDuck

Punk rock in Napa Valley? Hell yeah. Behind the tasting bar at this little-known Napa gem hangs a modernized print of Jacques-Louis David’s “The Death of Socrates,” in which the Greek philosopher raises his pointed finger against a graffiti slathered wall. Gamling and McDuck are pseudonyms for Gabrielle Shaffer and Adam McClary, a Minnesota couple who moved to Napa in 2008 and founded their wine label shortly thereafter. McClary drew a comic book detailing the history of the label, which is displayed across the tasting room walls. Visit the tasting room for a five-wine flight – “six if we like you” – according to the menu, and rock out to some old school jams.

The Prisoner Wine Company

Embodying the motto “born to be different,” Prisoner has re-imagined the traditional tasting room by creating a comfortable lounge experience free from pomp and circumstance. You won’t find any crystal-adorned chandeliers here, but you will find bold, unapologetic wines (and a pretty amazing wine and food pairing experience). Insider tip: Save a few minutes after your tasting to explore The Makery on site, which features products from a community of local artisans.

Prager Winery & Port Works

The tasting room walls are decorated floor to ceiling with currency from around the world, making for a pretty amazing photo op, and the Prager brothers are some of the friendliest folks in Napa Valley.
