For a grab-and-go picnic-in-a-vineyard perfection, stop by the Italian-influenced retail store and take-away shop Foodshed in North Napa. Napa native Giovanni Guerrera opened it in July 2013 after a stint in Italy working for Alice Water’s Rome Sustainable Food Project. Looking to combine great food, community and social responsibility, he partnered with On the Move, a local non-profit, to create an internship program for low-income and immigrant youth. Today, the place turns out some of the valley’s best pizzas, contorni and sandwiches, and funnels the profits back into the internship program. What’s more, beverage director Maddie DeWitt’s all Cal-Ital and Italian wine program has the shelves filled with rare gems like Arbe Garbe’s Friulian-influenced white and Motta’s ciliegiolo from Tuscany.
