The 2 1/2-hour drive from Napa to Calaveras County has numerous unique stops along the way. Recently, I stopped in Rio Vista, a small river port in the Delta, whose downtown has not changed in 60 years. Someone suggested I try Foster’s Big Horn for a sandwich. Low and behold, this was a new adventure.
