Napa Day Trip

Morgan was here for the Memorial Day weekend and we had a fantastic time! We woke up early last Friday, picked up our coffee, and got on the road to Napa as soon as we could.  We arrived in time for a tour of the Mumm Napa Winery, which I had never done even though this is one of my favorite vineyards and I take everyone who visits me there.  We were the only people that signed up and showed up for the 10AM tour so we basically had a private tour of the winery.  It was very informative although Morgan and I both declined to hear the portion about the SF Giants and their partnership because we are Texas Rangers girls forever!  The best part was that they start the tour with a glass of wine and they refill your cup as you go.  After the tour, we wandered through their Fine Photography Gallery that features photography by Wayne Levins and the legendary Ansel Adams before ending up in their Oak Terrace for a private tasting.  The entire morning was super relaxing and just fun! We had a reservation for lunch at Farmstead at Meadow Ranch which I've always heard wonderful things about and I was excited to finally get a reservation. While the food was AMAZING, I don't know if it warranted a 30min+ wait (with a reservation!) but the ambiance was definitely cozy, private, and posh.
After lunch, we headed to Alpha Omega Winery, which was beautifully landscaped just like all of Napa. I had never been here before and it did not disappoint. It is just a gorgeous property and every single wine was wonderful.  We finished our day at Chandon where we picked up our flight of bubbly and wandered around the estate and sat to look out over the vineyards from the little hilltop.  Wine was a great way to spend the day and we were happy to head back to the Bay Area for dinner with my guys.
