Now for Napa

I've been a lover of wine ever since I spent a year in Australia. Until then, I could take it or leave it. Being immersed in a country where wine is a major part of the culture was perfect for opening my eyes to what wines I love (white and sweet), what wines I could learn to love (most reds), and what wines I don't care for (sorry chardonnay).

Imagine my excitement to visit one of the most popular wine regions in the world- Napa Valley, California!

Robert Mondavi

The scenery was stunning, and the weather was super hot. I was wearing clothes totally unsuitable for 30 degree plus temperatures.

We did a day trip on a bus that took us to four wineries, and it was a great way to visit the region for the first time. When we go back, I think we'll drive ourselves and stay overnight in the area. We visited Robert Mondavi, Folie a Deux, Franciscan Estate, and Andretti. The wines we tasted were delicious - my personal favorite was the Moscato at Robert Mondavi.

Mad props to Joe Fresh for making a pair of fabulous red jeans that remained comfortable for the whole day, even in sweltering heat.
