July 29, 2017: Napa Valley

Wine tasting round two! I completely forgot to blog about this. I’ll do my best to remember what I did that day. 

L-R: Adrian, Katie, me, Bernice, Brea, and Justin.

  • V. Sattui Winery. It was a birthday party for Pauline and David. Adrian, Katie, and I decided to wine taste inside. Everyone else was having lunch. 
  • I ended up buying two bottles of wine. Dessert wine ftw! 
  • Oxbow Public Market is amazing btw. That’s where we had lunch. It was delicious! (Steak sandwich + mac & cheese for me! Thanks Adrian.)
  • Peju Province Winery was cool! That’s where the picture was taken. 
  • After that we went to Bouchon Bakery. I went ham on macarons & bread. It was my first time there so I thought, why not? πŸ™‚
  • To end the day, we all had dinner back at Oxbow Public Market. We went to the kitchen door. 
  • Random memory: back at the first winery, B told me she saw someone from high school. Turns out it was our former crush. LOL. #bye 

Will continue to update. I’ll do my best to make it a weekly thing. I want to get back to documenting everything. I find comfort in nostalgia. 

Happy weekend to all! ❀️

Napa Valley Wine Tour.Β 

Napa Valley! I was there with my college friends – Dania & Mari via the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours on 7/15. Pretty legit. πŸ™‚

The first stop was the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a beautiful day, but Karl the fog was still sticking around. Beautiful views. I love my city! We ended up at four wineries. Two in Sonoma and two in Napa.

1. Jacuzzi Family Vineyards

2. Larson Family Winery

3. Kieu Hoang Winery

4. Madonna Estate

I did the wine tasting for all of them. Prices are reasonable ranging from $10-$20. I’m a big fan of dessert wines! Sweet is the way to go for me. My favorites would have to be Jacuzzi and Larson from that day. Very accommodating and super friendly.

We spent a good 8 hours up north before we headed back to the city. It was a wonderful time getting to catch up with my college friends. It’s been so long. We talked about everything! I do get nostalgic a lot of the time because college was so much fun. People really do make the experience.

The following day, we decided to grab brunch before Mari headed home. We went to Breakfast at Tiffany’s in the Excelsior. I had the corned beef hash Benedict. Absolutely amazing. I’ll definitely be back for that.

More updates coming soon. πŸ˜€
