  • F1-Forum Answer - A Napa Valley wineries tour. You will want to book this in advance but essentially most will take you out on a coach to 4 wineries (on the trip I did one of them was owned by Mario Andretti, so there's a motor racing angle there). You do a bunch of tastings and then come back by a long ferry ride from Vallejo. Very nice day Napa Valley Wineries
