Once you get to Oakville
Fuel up for a day on the go at the Oakville Grocery, where you'll find everything from artisan cheeses and breads to salads, soups and made-to-order sandwiches. Or opt for a food-pairing flight at B Cellars, and learn how the flavors of food and wine complement each other.
Try a tasting and in-depth winery tour of Robert Mondavi Winery, to learn about the vineyards, cellar and barrel room. Then drive over to Silverado Trail and visit Miner Family Winery, where you can try your hand at winemaking by experimenting with your own blend.
A little Oakville history
Oakville started in the 1860s as a water stop on the steam train line between ferry boats that docked in Vallejo and the resort town of Calistoga. The village gained its name from the dense groves of dark green valley oaks of the area. In 1868, H. W. Crabb turned Oakville into a wine-growing area that would become legendary. He called his vineyard estate To Kalon (Greek for "the beautiful"). Today, To Kalon produces grapes for Robert Mondavi Winery, as well as PlumpJack and other acclaimed producers.
