Yesterday we had the pleasure of having a driver take us around to about 5 boutique style wineries out here in Napa and Sonoma.
If you go, do this. I'm serious.
Not only is it safer, they are very knowledgable about the wineries and it will exponentially enhance your experience while you are out here.
Our driver was Andrew.
And he was terrific.
First, we had to take the obligatory pic at the French Laundry.
I know, I know, it's won the James Beard award more times than you can count, but honestly, it is not my favorite, nor is it "W's. But we still had our pic made.
Ya know? We just don't like to sit at a table for 3 hours eating quarter size food of which we aren't sure what we are eating.
That the reason.
So, then we had to take the obligatory pic of the castle.
Didn't go inside, because as I said, this was our day for visiting boutique wineries. And that my friends is what we like to do when we come to Napa!
Here we go.
And by the way, every one of the wines we tasted were some of the best we've had since coming to Napa for 30 years straight.
oops, this was from yesterday ;)
they had lots of animals.
First stop Speedy Creek.
Ya'll, the moss hanging over the wine tasting was just beautiful!
I just became a Rose' drinker.
and the wonderful owner of the winery made us homemade bread. Let me tell ya, it was GOOD.
Can I tell you how proud of my hubs?
He has lost 40 lbs.
(the right way, by eating right and working out)
I'm going to paint this barn.
This was Marone
We bought everything we tasted.
Plus he was really, really fun
Today? we will be in a glider, attached to a plane up in the mountains of Napa and let go to glide down. I absolutely cannot wait!
(hope to see you tomorrow) (wink)
Have a great day ya'll!!!
