North to Napa

Headed to Napa Valley on Tuesday night for wine tasting and R&R . We hit up the Robert Mondavi Winery, which I just read was the first upscale winery that inspired the rest of the region. Well, the wine was alright and it was cool to get a souvenir glass to take home but our pourer was rude and not helpful at all.

But the landscaping of the vineyard is beautiful and it was a hot day up north. Beautiful.

We stayed at the Candlelight Inn, which is one of the most romantic bed and breakfast inn's in California and possibly the United States. Wendy, the proprietor, was super nice. There is a huge pool in the backyard and breakfast is a three course delicacy of fruit, crepes and quiche. 

On Wednesday we headed even farther up north to Lake Berryesa to swim. We didn't rent boats but we should have. 

Amazing mid-week getaway online 1.5 hrs from San Francisco but it felt like another world.
