Possibly the smallest tasting room in the entire Napa Valley and one of Downtown Napa’s most unique new spots is Shadowbox, which offers a tasting pairing known as ‘Salt & Acid’. The distinctive combination explores how well acid-driven wines pair with a variety of flavors using handcrafted, small-batch potato chips in a handful of unique flavors. Don’t forget to make an appointment!

New Dining

Trendy Oxbow Public Market, anchoring the popular Oxbow District of Downtown Napa, welcomed not one, but two new vendors this fall!

El Porteño offers savory and sweet empanadas, as well as alfajores, which are traditional sandwich cookies joined together with house-made sweet fillings. Representing both the local food movement and the preservation of traditional cuisine, El Porteño’s empanadas fuse family recipes of generations past, using only the finest ingredients that are organic, always local and seasonal.

Bar Lucia was created and designed by the founders of the iconic Kara’s Cupcakes. Bar Lucia features a variety of local rosés, sparkling wines and a menu of seasonal light bites, all designed to pair perfectly with the wine selection. Many of the garden greens, herbs and stone fruits on the menu are grown in the owners’ Napa backyard.

New Shopping
