the napa folder
i guess i kind of made a vow to myself to get here every day for the foreseeable future. it’s a great escape from the inbox and lets me relive last week. i just came across our day in napa and if i don’t go thru it now, i never will.
it’s our second or third time coming up (for work)!
all our days have started with breakfast at the bouchon bakery in yountville.
i was playing with my new camera, can you tell?!
of course napa was exquisite.
we stopped by a couple wineries but none compared to the robinson family vineyards. of all the places we’ve ever gone, this was by far my favorite. we met the proprietor, tom, and felt like we were at a friend’s house.
their entire business is small and intimate and everyone is involved from his daughters (who created a killer red called ‘great legs’), to the grandkids.
in fact, in season he says everyone comes over and they have a grand old time making wine. he said lots of guests turn friends and come up just for that. anyway, if you’re heading up there i highly recommend a visit for a really special experience and the best red we had in napa!
the cherry on top was a picnic lunch in their beautiful backyard. that was a fun day.
the rest are just some random napa shots. i’m still getting used to the camera but having the different art filters is making taking them more fun. ok back to the grindstone! xoc
