Napa Valley travel guide I

Family trips/ reviews

Wine wine and more wine.

It was a fabulous time we didn’t stop from the time our feet hit Cali to the time we went up in the hot air ballon. I can’t even tell you how much fooood and drinks I had their but it was so worth it.

Our flight was delayed by over an hour which put us behind our tight schedule.

Our first stop was Castello di amorosa

We were suppose to have the guided tour but due to our delay we missed it and only had time for a short tasting. In the off season everything closes around 5 pm as far as wineries which seemed early but is the norm there.

Maxi dress

Not going to lie I am sad we didn’t get to do the tour because I have heard great things and their staff was not super friendly as we arrived close to closing and their wine was mediocre. If you go I highly suggest doing to tour as far as a photo opt it’s beautiful.

We had a little extra time before dinner since we didn’t get the tour and was told about this cute little place down the road.

Brass wood which was super cute and intimate. We had the daily hand spun mozzarella and when I tell you I could have had 10 more plates I could have.

It was quite when we got there but filled up fast with reservations so I would make sure you make reservations.

We just shared a few things there as we had dinner somewhere else but everything here was exceptional.

Next our dinner was at Farmstead.

It is a highly recommended restaurant with great reviews. The name is exactly as it says a little farm style restaurant. It was again quite busy and we had to wait even with reservations.

We had a few plates of the pimento cheese deviled eggs which were so yummy. We were also celebrating birthday so they brought each of us our own ice cream with candle.

Over all the dining experience was wonderful.

I would recommend renting a car or car service before arrival as ubering every got quite pricey.

This was our first night there and it was fantastic filled with great food, drinks, and company. But just wait until day two.
