Happy Friday ladies! We’re almost to the weekend. My husband and I started ours early. We went wine tasting in Napa with some dear friends yesterday. It felt like the weekend only better because there were no crowds.
Sorry for the fuzzy pictures, they were taken with my husbands’ phone. Every time we visit Napa, I wonder why we haven’t moved there! The little towns are charming and filled with delicious restaurants. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the people are friendly. The scenery is gorgeous, and the wineries are fabulous. What’s not to love?
We started at my favorite winery, Merryvale Vineyards, in St Helena. We did some wine tasting with cheese pairings that were perfect. I wore my Haven Top by Porto from Artful Home, with Eileen Fisher crepe pants and knee high boots.
After a quick lunch, we visited Davis Estates, in Calistoga. The weather had cooled off dramatically by this point and so we were all keeping our coats on.
Their outdoor patio had comfy couches that were on swings. On a clear day, the view across the valley is to Castello di Amoroso, which is a must visit in Calistoga.
We wove our way across the valley to see it. It was built to resemble a medieval castle by winemaker, Dario Sattui.
I hope you have fun things planned for your weekend!
