I’m a big fan of wine and I live less than an hour away from Napa now. I’m hoping that this recent trip with friends was just the first of many.
Here’s what we did.
We started off at Oxbow Public Market for breakfast from C Casa and coffee from Ritual.
After lunch we did another tasting at St. Supéry, which I thought had just mediocre wine. Some of us played pétanque, which confused me since I’m more of a bocce ball gal. And I was bummed that they wouldn’t let us drink outside.
Our last and final stop of the day was Cuvaison. We picked up some picnic goods from Dean & DeLuca then made ourselves at home on Cuvaison’s outdoor patio overlooking vineyards. We were surprised to learn that most wineries close at 5:30, so we didn’t have much time. If you visit, I’d recommend that you start your day early and really only plan for 3-4 stops at the most.
