Silverado Trail is one of the two main “routes du vin” in Napa Valley.  It’s not as well known as St. Helena Highway (Route 29), but along its 30 miles, some 200 wineries produce world-class wines.  Notable among them are Stags Leap Wine Cellars, and not far off the trail, Chateau Montelena, labels that put California wine on the map by winning best red and white wine respectively in the “Judgement of Paris” in 1976.  

On the Saturday I drove up with a friend on a wine-tasting outing, the weather changed constantly, from squalls of heavy rain to sunshine to drizzle and, a blanket of light mist covered the valley here and there.  The varying shades of light on vines and trees, already showing a range of Fall colors, created a moving tapestry.  

Solbar is the Michelin starred restaurant in Solage, a resort hotel surrounded by mountain ranges in the valley near Calistoga.  
It is a large, high-ceilinged room with eclectic seating arrangements--sections for a bar, high tables and chairs, sofas, and normal tables and chairs.  The outside patio, shaded by trees, was not in use for our visit, but can seat almost as many as the inside.
