Live Fire Pizza
610 First St
Napa, CA 94558
A great stop for any Napa Valley group wine tour is the lively Oxbow Market, where a variety of vendors offer food, wine, fine pastries and chocolate, artisanal olive oils, and more. The Live Fire menu was created by local chef Liza Shaw to celebrate Northern California’s signature flavors. Drinks include Bay Area brews, a complete coffee and tea menu, and wines chosen to pair well with pizza. Specialty toppings will please any palate, from the Vegan with seasonal veggies to the Calamari pizza (think squid, chiles, capers, and more!).

4110 Howard Ln
Napa, CA 94558
This popular Italian spot is known for much more than their pizzas – like the fresh breads and pastas handmade onsite everyday, the al fresco and fireside dining options, an extensive signature cocktail list, and dedicated hospitality. But the menu is still the centerpiece of every meal. The best part about Don Giovanni’s embrace of traditional Italian dining is that you get fine cuisine in a beautiful setting–but the restaurant still doesn’t take itself too seriously. Take for example the Bambini pizza: pepperoni, tomato, mozzarella, and french fries, with the side note “no green stuff.” A perfect choice for any Napa Valley group wine tour that includes both foodies and picky eaters.
6755 Washington St
Yountville, CA 94599
Chef Richard Reddington’s Redd Wood offers a changing menu that highlights the seasonal bounties of wine country. Brick oven pizza gets a Napa Valley makeover: the Mushroom pie is dressed with bechamel, pancetta, kabocha squash, and seasonings like nutmeg and chives. The Mortadella features brussels sprouts with lemon zest and asiago. And their spin on the Hawaiian, the “Red Chorizo,” includes pineapple and jalapeno with smoked mozzarella. For an extra wine-country twist, you can even add a farm egg to any pie! The restaurant is popular and well-reviewed, and has been named among the best dining in Napa Valley’s Yountville by several outlets. A great pizza pick for any Napa Valley group wine tour excited to try farm-to-table style pies!
