Best Wineries to Visit in Napa, California

I LOVE WINE which makes it very difficult to figure out where to go in Napa! I've not only done my own extensive research in personal tastings, but I have also made this awesome map so I can see how close the vineyards are: 

Please see our related posts HOW TO SPEND A WEEKEND WINE TASTING IN NAPA and THE BEST WINERIES IN SONOMA COUNTY which coincide with this map as well!

Now, onto the best wineries in Napa!

    We walked up around 11a without a reservation and were seated immediately. Since it was December and on the cooler side, we opted to sit in the salon for our tasting. Also, I want one of these in my house:
