Domaine Carneros is known for award-winning, organic Napa Valley sparkling wine ("California Champagne"), and Pinot Noir. It was beautiful, but truth be told, we didn’t taste any wine there. Yikes! We had an entire day ahead of us, so it was crucial to stay focused and prioritize our tastings. But again, still so beautiful and reminiscent of chateaus we’ve seen upon our trip to Paris.
porchetta, prosciutto cotto ham, soppressata, provolone cheese, Calabrian sweet pickles with honey dijon on ciabatta. I can’t even put into words how good it was, so I won’t even attempt. Just trust me.
Stop number three was the only winery we actually had a schedule appointment with. Before leaving these parts, we def wanted to book a tour in addition to tastings in order to get the “full all access experience” - and Castello di Amorosa was where we chose.
That marked the end of our beverage tour and we then embarked on our 1-hour jaunt toward our final California destination: San Francisco - where we did all the typical tourist(y) stuff. Beach, Muir Woods, Clam Chowder, Pier 39, Seal entertainment, Giants game, the obligatory Golden Gate bridge selfie.
I'm not the smartest woman in the world, but I'm smart enough to know that God's hand had everything to do with orchestrating this incredible trip with my best dude. I am so grateful. WE are so grateful. Praise him!
And just for a fun takeaway - if you've ever wondered what it looks like to sip a strong wine - this is your demonstration: Sorry, J!
Now go out and get your travel on!
