Napa : California Wine Country

9.02.2011


I've mentioned before that I don't drink but boy do I love me some wine-tasting and vineyard trips! Strange, I know, but there's so much more to 'wine country' than just drinking. There's the amazing food, the chateaus, the ambience, the art of wine-making... I mean the list goes on and on and Napa Valley is no exception. Our first stop was Chateau Montelena followed by Castello di Amorosa, which was so grand, it deserved a blog post all its own. I'm obsessed with how yummy those grapevines look so I tried to coerce my friend to drive up next to a row lining the driveway which would allow me to snatch a few and speed off with my prize, but nooo. She refused. So Napa, I'm coming back for you and your grapes.

That looks wonderful!
And, just like you said, it really isn't all about wine. Places like that have a soul. At least I like to believe that. :)

Following! :)

Lovely spot.
I was able to head out to Napa Valley last year and loved it. There is such a wide variation of architecture from quaint house-like wineries with wrap around decks to sit and taste on. Or castles in your case or even more modern mansion-like spots. I really enjoy when the wine and architecture marry to create a unique theme and such a definitive taste that it is unforgettable.
