La Taberna is your quintessential Spanish tavern where pinxtos are handwritten on a chalkboard; Rotating dishes include pulpo (octopus), saffron patatas (potatoes), clams romesco and iconic Jamon Iberico for around $10 each. In proper taberna form, drinks are a huge part of the draw here. Besides craft beer, there is plenty of sherry, sidra (cider), vermut (vermouth) and wines from Spain as well as California.
It may be possible to subsist on wine alone during a wine tasting trip to Napa Valley, bouncing from one winery in Napa to the next, but you'd be missing out on an incredible culinary experience. It's not just the Michelin star restaurants that should have you excited at these Napa restaurants, though: Downtown Napa is rife with great burger joints, steakhouses and tapas spots, along with craft cocktail bars and beer bars that offer a momentary respite from all that wine.
