Girl's weekend in Napa Valley . . . where do I start? It was amazingly relaxing and so special to be with my sisters, sister-in-law, aunt and cousin for 3 days. I really don't have any good explanation for why I've never been there before (and why my wine-loving husband has never been there either) and it exceeded my expectations. Even though I couldn't participate in the wine tasting because I'm pregnant, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. A special thanks to J for staying home with our daughter so I could have so much fun!
Hidden Oak Bed and Breakfast in Sonoma - clean, charming home and great breakfasts (and snacks)
Go Fish! in St. Helena - the pictures speak for themselves
The Oxbow Market in Napa - not quite the Ferry Market building, but really cool.
Tour of the Kunde wine cave and Rombauer - probably my favorites of the wineries we visited.
Lunch at the Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant at the Culinary Institute of America where I even ate pate and smelt - two things I don't normally enjoy.
