One-Tank Trip to the Silverado Trail

They call it the quiet side of Napa Valley. Although visitors will find no billboards along the 30-mile stretch of wineries, they may encounter locals with purple hands and teeth, smiling that special smile. Highway 29 is the road for heavy traffic, but the Silverado Trail heads into the foothills via the back roads. It’s a trail of orchards, vines, views, farms, farm stands, charming inns and grand resorts, even a few stately homes and a world-class restaurant or two.
