The Napa Valley 750 Is A Car Guy’s Must-Do

Your vintage Jaguar or Ferrari wasn’t designed to sit idly in your garage every day.

Here’s a jaunty way to take it for a spin this spring in the company of other car aficionados. The Napa Valley 750: The Wine Country Road Rally is a four-day, 750-mile scenic drive through a few counties of Northern California. The event, organizers say, is open to owners of “vintage and modern sports cars of significant makes, with a focus on motorcars built prior to 1976.”

This year’s rally (the second annual) will be April 11 to 16, sponsored by Ferrari of San Francisco. Last year’s entrants included a 1965 Shelby Cobra, a 1953 Porsche 356 Outlaw, a 1973 Dino 246 GTS, and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4.

The route goes over hills, through valleys, and along stunning bits of the Pacific Coast. At the end of each afternoon, you’ll return to the Harvest Inn, located in the Napa Valley town of St. Helena, and shuttled to a nearby winery, a different venue each evening, for dinner amongst the vineyards.
