A little Napa get-a-way

Last weekend we spent a few days in the beautiful Napa Valley. Of course while we were there we tasted some wonderful wine and enjoyed some fabulous food, the perfect location for both.

Saturday we started with our favorite winery, Flora Springs. The vineyard is somewhat barren this time of year but oh, the potential!

Comparing the wood of French oak barrels and American oak  barrels

Travis was our host for the day. He did an outstanding job of pouring and pouring! (Lighting in the barrel rooms is a bit challenging).

Our second winery of the day was Stony Hill. A lovely family owned vineyard high in the hills. Our hostess was Mrs. McCrea, the proprietor. We enjoyed a barrel tasting in the very intimate barrel room then it was off to the tasting room.

We topped off the night with a lovely dinner at Market. Always one of our favorites. 

And then there was Sunday...
