Wine Country

Here I am in Napa. It's my first trip out here, and I'm already enthralled. I can see why so many people love this area. The mountains surround the valley, the tips covered in fog and vineyards are scattered across the valley floor. Even now, in the off-season, it's beautiful.

 

We're staying at the Silverado Resort, a collection of privately owned properties each with a unique feel. The main resort is called the Mansion, and is rather striking.

 

 

 

Today we did a couple of wine tours. Peju- a lovely little winery with an excellent selection. I have to say I did not try a single wine here I didn't like. Then on to Merryvale, with beautiful cask-lined rooms and event space. The brandy-infused dessert wine here was delish.

 

 

 

I have to say the GPS would be great for marking your wine trail, since you tend to forget after a few glasses ;). You can take a look at just a few of the pics below and see where they were taken here: Napa Album
