Day 7 - Napa Valley 5/19

It was a fairly short ride from Palo Alto, up through San Francisco through some of the most incredible traffic to Rhonert Park, just south of Santa Rosa.  I checked in early to the hotel, and then took the most amazing ride over a small mountain pass on this unvelievable twisty, pretty road up, over and down into the Napa Valley.


Eucaplyptus and oak trees lining the road, it smelled wonderful.

Once I got into the Napa Valley: throw a rock, hit a winery.  And the traffic was pretty special too.


I decided to drop into the V. Sattui winery for a tasting.  It turned out to be a Disneyland-scale operation.  There must have been 2 - 3 thousand people there!


Pretty good wine, too, but I wasn't going to buy a $65 bottle of their 2006 cab (10 bottle limit for shiping).

Whatever real estate that doesn't have a winery on it, has grapes growing on it.
