Silverado Vineyards and Bottega

On Tuesday, Erik took the day off so we could go up to Napa Valley for my birthday! We decided to make two stops at wineries we haven't been to and have a nice lunch. First stop was Silverado Vineyards. Silverado Vineyards are owned by Diane Disney Miller who is Walt Disney's daughter!
It was a beautiful winery with great views. We tried 5 or 6 different wines including a really good $100 bottle of wine that we did NOT purchase :-)

 After our tasting at Silverado, we went to lunch at Bottega. Bottega is the restaurant of chef Michael Chiarello. You may have seen him on the Food Network!
 We had an amazzzzzing lunch. The food was SO good and service was impeccable. All of the food in Napa is so good.
First, we had a sashimi to start. It was served on a giant salt block. 

We also shared this delicious dish of Burrata Primavera layered panzanella of English peas, favas, round carrots, mint with pea tendrils and crisp shallots So good. 

For lunch, I had the beet ravioli filled with cheese in a hazelnut, brown butter sauce. SO good. 

Erik had the Paprika Oil Marinated Grilled Skirt Steak yukon gold potato chips, salsa rossa, arugula

After lunch, we headed over to our second winery....
