A Napa Valley Weekend

We spent a fabulous long weekend in Napa Valley celebrating the hubby's 50th birthday. We were joined by old friends and new...what a wonderful time, we were truly spoiled. Saturday started off with a private tour, tasting and a wonderful lunch at Quintessa. The family that owns the vineyard were so extremely gracious and opened up their home to us and served a most memorable meal of cauliflower soup, grilled salmon with asparagus, a cheese course and the most heavenly chocolate tart with raspberries. Here are a few of the glorious views. Is the playhouse in the vineyard not the most charming thing you have seen!
Yummy wine waiting to be bottled. We tasted some fabulous wines down in the cave.

The vines were asleep but so amazing to see with mustard flowers blooming all around

Breakfast in St. Helena to get our day started.
