Napa Wineries

We are visiting Napa in July for a few days and I am planning to visit some wineries on Howell Mtn. I have an appt at Viader and Cade and I would like to make an appt in between those two as there are a few hours free. I called Ladera and they are closed when I wanted to go. Any favorites in the area.

Next I am onto Spring Mtn. I have booked Smith Madrone and I am looking into Sherwin Family, Keenan, Spring Mtn vineyard. Any preferences or comments on these three.

We will have a little time in Healdsburg and Sonoma - haven't chosen any here yet. Any suggestions?

I have been reading the board and they are really very helpful. I might add I am very happy to say we have a res at TFL for my birthday. I am really looking forward to a special experience.

Thank you for all your help.

Reservations for September

I think I am in trouble - My family and I will be in Paris September 16th for 5 nights. We just planned this trip and therefore haven't made any reservations yet. Many of the restaurants we would like to dine in are now on vacation. Does anyone know when the following restaurants will be back from vacation. I am anxiously awaiting their opening to make reservations. Thank you for your help.

La Regalade
Frenchie
Spring
La Gaigne
Les Papilles
L'Argrume
Chez L'ami Jean

Wish meeeeee luck!!!!

Please critique my Paris eating itinerary

I was recently in Paris and my husband and I ate at Chez Dumonet - I also visited in November with my daughter - I was wondering which area is considered the "tourist" area. The bar area or the back.

First night suggestion

Les Papilles will be on vacation when I am in Paris on March 20th - any replacement suggestions - I am disappointed - I was looking forward to going there.

Rome - March 2010 need just a little help in choices

Going in one week will be in Rome for a few days.

Do you like

Da I Due Ciccioni or Il Drappo - night one

Antico Arco or Felice A Testaccio - night two

Ditirambo or Da Danilo or Spirit Divino - night three

I know they are all different so I will have to make some choices.

Almost final eating itinerary....your thoughts?

My husband and I will be in Rome Florence and Venice in March (3,4,3 nights.) I have been reading the posts and researching and this is what I have come up with so far. I must admit I am having the most trouble with Florence - need some help here. I have some extras because I am not sure and some of your faves but I just wondered if you thought I've missed anything. I would like some less expensive, some around 150E is fine and a few expensive is fine. We would prefer local places - not too big and definitely not touristy. Please let me know what you think. Thank you for all your input.

Rome
Da I Due Ciccioni
Il Drappo
Antico Arco
Ditirambo
Da Danilo

Florence
Il Giostra (many conflicting opinions - not sure about this)
Tratoria Nella
Santo Bevitore? (friend recommended)
Sostanza

Venice
Il Ridotto (splurge but looks so great)
Il Refolo

Thanks for your input.
