In Napa we stayed with Dave of Carneros Della Notte winery (check out Pino NV on YouTube and the delicious Liquid Panty Remover wine) who was generous enough to give us a place to lay our heads and delicious meals! I even got to see a dear friend from middle school who lives near by. Poppy and I visited several wineries and agreed Viader and Benziger both knocked our socks off.
What really became glaringly obvious was how my taste in spring break trips have changed. Past trips have been to Vegas, Florida, or Havasu...now I opt for wine and good food. Apparently now the only parties I prefer are the ones in my mouth! (I realize this could be a totally in the gutter comment and am choosing to ignore it.) I left the west with renewed appreciation for wines and incredibly tight pants.
Today I'm grateful for home sweet home, San Francisco, and American wines.
