Concierge.com's insider take:

If you're short on time but want to sample some of Napa Valley's best small-production vintages, make a beeline to Vintners Collective. Located in an 1875 sandstone building—a former brewery and brothel—the tasting lounge features 18 lesser-known, boutique wineries. Standouts include a grapefruit-y sauvignon blanc from Vinoce Vineyards and several deep-fruit zinfandels from D Cubed Cellars. Choose a tasting of four or seven wines. For the grand treatment, call ahead to reserve the "private sensory tasting," which includes a full flight poured by a wine educator and paired with a charcuterie plate. Featured winemakers occasionally stop by to speak with visitors or to pour their own wines, especially on weekends. There are also monthly special events on Saturdays, ranging from release parties for new vintages to themed parties such as Slurp-and-Sip (pairing oysters with wine). Tasting fee; no appointment necessary.

Open daily 11 am to 6 pm.
