Sping in Napa Valley

Working in the wine industry has perks.  Great wine.  Delectable food pairings.  Did I mention the great wine?  Well, as I planned and packed for a business trip this past winter, we decided two weeks before the trip to do a spontaneous long weekend in Napa.  We dont have kids.  Our car is paid off.  Why not.  Wine-Not.

Classical Music and stately architecture at Opus One.

We logged onto Airbnb, found what looked to be a cute little room for rent in a house.  That is a story I will have to share at another time...

We were walking distance from downtown Napa, hired a driver and made our tasting reservations.  Napa Valley Tours is the best and ask for Tony- his tips for places to stop for lunch or wineries that were on our way that we had time to stop for that he suggested.  Plus Tony let us rock out to T Swift so what is not to love?  Stay posted for spotlights of wineries we visited and our recommendations!

Weekend Happenings

The Husband and I spent this past weekend having loads of fun with friends and family.

Some good friends from our college days back at WSU came into town & we headed out wine tasting!
There is nothing better than sipping some new vino, talking about what is going on in each others lives and reconnecting.

Tasting at Bookwalter Winery, Richland WA

We were short on time and decided to taste around the Queensgate wineries in Richland.  The area has three wineries all within walking distance, Bookwalter, Barnard Griffon, and Tagaris.

We enjoyed the reserve list at Barnard Griffon and took home some Reserve Chardonnay and some Syrah Port style wine for the holidays.  At Bookwalter, we enjoyed the red wine list.  We finished the day with some killer pizza from Brickhouse in West Richland.  Seriously what is better than pizza after tasting?!  SO good.  

That evening we attended Chad's cousin Bo's wedding to the beautiful Kierstin!  Being a guest at a wedding is so relaxing!  To think that 6 months earlier I Chad and I were the ones walking down the isle... Time flies!  It was great to celebrate the Lybecks and see family that had traveled from all around.  Plus I got a chance to wear this fun gown from Nordstrom and dance the night away!

How was your weekend?
