After wine tasting at V. Sattui, you can order what you like from a wide selection at the deli. There are cheese, sausage and olive plates as well as meat or vegetarian sandwiches to choose from.
The return trip to San Francisco from Napa Valley is by ferry. You can go outside or stay inside the boat during the 50-minute calm water cruise across the bay catching great views of Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge, the city of San Francisco, as well as the Golden Gate Bridge.

You will receive the opportunity to explore this renowned landmark and tour its spooky cell blocks.
