{12 hours in Napa}

A lovely view of the entrance of Round Pond. One of my favorite spots of the day. 

Wine tasting at Round pond, overlooking the vineyards and the owners homes. Their children live in nearby houses. How cute!
A trio of wine and samples of food picked straight from the garden. <3
Loved everything about this moment.

An incredibly delicious sampling of  the 2007 vintage at Opus One.  
Cabernet Sauvignon 79%, Merlot 8%, Cabernet Franc 6%, Petit Verdot 6% and Malbec 1% = heaven.

A light snack at Auberge du Soleil to keep us going.
For only $500-$700 a night you get an amazing view of Napa, and a pool fit for a Queen (or King).

After a scenic drive from Napa to Sonoma, per recommendations we found our way to the Glen Ellen Inn. And feasted on saffron mussels and grilled salmon. 
Can't wait to be back... and to think I traded in the Kinzie bridge for the rolling Mountains?
