Francis Ford Coppola Winery

Hey there! It's been awhile. Last weekend my lovely sister was in town to help me kick off spring break. She's kinda awesome, and I realize how lucky I am to have a big sis who always knows how to cheer me up and give me great advice. So she got a Gilt deal for a three course meal and wine pairings at Francis Ford Coppola Winery so we thought we'd make a day of it! Little did we know it would be a long, longggg drive North in the pouring rain! It's ok. It was still super fun to spend some time together.
 Crazy drive through St.Helena and the country side. Note to self; see Napa in the summer time!

And the food...

The winery itself has Coppola's memorabilia for display and sits on land with a pool accessible for visitors. I wish it wasn't pouring, or freezing or else we would've come earlier in the day to enjoy the view. The prix fix menu was pretty good. We both got the steaks and zucchini fries to start. She had the Cesar salad and I had the house. The dessert was also lovely. The wine pairings were amazing and they didn't skimp on the pours. I really really enjoyed this meal. So fun!
