Day trip to Napa Valley

Today we were invited to Napa Valley by the brother of one of Dave’s best friends (it was Eric, Mark’s brother, in case you wanted to know :-)  ). Eric is a member of a few wine clubs out there and so we joined him and some of his friends to pick up his member packages and do some tasting! Isn’t Napa beautiful this time of year?


We visited four wineries and tasted at three of them. We took a tour at one of the wineries and at another winery we were able to see the beginning process of processing grapes. It was fun to be able to see this part of the wine making process… and it was even better to taste the end product.


Some of the wine was so good that we came home with a couple of bottles. Anyone care to come cork them with us?


We are so lucky that we live close to so many different areas with so much to see and do! It was a great day with new friends and we hope to do it again soon!


  1. I love wineries living on one was such an awesome experience growing up but I miss it now! It looks like you guys had such a fun time! I'm glad California is treating you all so well! :)

  2. Looks like so much fun! Napa Valley is sooo beautiful (or at least it looks that way in pictures I've unfortunately never been!).


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
