To celebrate my recent birthday and Valentine’s day, Andrew and I took a trip across the Golden Gate bridge to Napa. It’s a rarity that we take advantage of this beautiful countryside essentially right in our backyard. What a perfect weekend to visit. The sun-kissed, rolling hills were dotted with bare vines ready for this Spring’s blossoms. While the harvest in October is usually a busy time here, visiting during the “off-season” allowed us 1st class access to some of Napa’s best wineries.
Our visit was short, but sweet for sure. From the moment we checked in at the Silverado Resort, & Spa we were greeted with near 80 degree weather and bottle of cabernet to prime our palettes. Then, we were off to our 1st tasting at William Hill Estates, followed by spa treatments back at Silverado. The evening was capped off by the most amazing dinner at Torc – a must-try if you make your way to Napa! The next day, we grabbed a leisurely brunch at Brix over-looking their pristine gardens. The waiter even brought by small bunches of tulips to each of the tables! I’ve never had a more perfect brunch in my life.
We rounded out our visit with a private tour of Kenzo Estate, saving the best for last! After driving uphill for what seems like an eternity, you finally arrive at the grand gates of Kenzo, and then you drive some more! When you finally arrive at the estate, you feel as if you’ve transcended into an entirely new territory. There is a sense of calmness and serenity at the estate that is no doubt infused by Japanese culture at the root of the winery. All in all, it was an incredible trip and I’m already looking forward to my next weekend jaunt up to wine country!
