Friday in Napa

We took the day off yesterday to go up to Napa for Amy's birthday. It was warm & sunny and so much fun! First stop, Trefethen.

We had a big table for all of us & tried a mix of red & whites. I would definitely go back!

Next up, Lunch at Brix. We started with some champagne to celebrate, tempura green beans, & bread. Erik and I ordered the zucchini & goat cheese pizza and the salmon for lunch. I was underwhelmed by both. The meal was good but the pizza was a little bland and the fish was overcooked. Not sure if I'd go back here for a meal since there are so many other awesome places to eat in Napa.

After lunch, we went to Honig. Amy is a member there & we love sitting outside. It's such a pretty time to be in Napa. It's warm, sunny, and the vines are packed with grapes. Yes, I pulled a few off to try yesterday!

Last stop of the day was, Alpha Omega. We were able to have a private seating set up since we are club members! It was awesome.


We also went into the barrel room to taste the most amazing wine, ERA 2008. This wine is so delicious and it's not even at it's peak. Bottles cost $100+ and are recommended to be saved for 10 yrs to age to perfection.

We were able to get a group shot outside!

What a fun day. It's days like this when I am truly happy that we have the opportunity to live out here.
