Is it easy to get to area vineyards? Or would we need a car?
I'd say that you definitely need a car. Downtown Napa is maybe a 20 minute drive away, and the vast majority of vineyards are even further north than that. Unfortunately, public transportation is nearly non-existent in the general Napa area.
