Concierge.com's insider take:

Call ahead to this artisanal food shop for a gourmet box lunch, complete with focaccia sandwich (choose from ten varieties); pasta salad; olive-and-cornichon garnish; and a homemade cookie. Or better yet, stop in to browse for picnic fixings, including local cheeses, mustards, hearth breads, charcuterie meats, and smoked fish. The space has the feel of a rustic country store, with creaky wooden floors, floor-to-ceiling shelves, and large baskets to hold your purchases. The location, right on Highway 29 in Oakville, makes this an ideal stopover when you're heading north through Napa Valley toward St. Helena from downtown Napa or Yountville; but if you're headed south in heavy weekend traffic, it's next to impossible to turn left into the driveway. There's a second location in Healdsburg (124 Matheson St.; 707-433-3200). If crowds (and high prices) turn you off, skip Oakville Grocery in favor of the rough-around-the-edges but oh-so-authentic Napa Valley Olive Oil Manufacturing Co. in St. Helena.

Open daily 9 am to 6 pm.
