Napa & Yountville

On Saturday my best friend and I took a trip to Napa and Yountville in celebration of her birthday. We started at Domaine Carneros for some fantastic glasses of bubbly. This is the place to go if you want to enjoy a beautiful property and cool down with some refreshing champagne.

Ahhh 

Such a bright and beautiful day outside!

Someone is happily reading her phone...

Until she needs to wait 

"The Flight" of champagne! And sparkling rosé!

How can you not enjoy this view?

Sad to leave but ready for more adventure...

Oh, and she's buzzed on the way out

From there we ventured to Yountville. By this time it was about, oh, 100+ degrees. So we were sweating like crazy. We ate at the ever-so-fantastic Redd Wood (across from Thomas Keller's French Laundry). We started with a glass of prosecco and shared the shaved vegetable salad, and a four cheese pizza topped with arugula. Then, last but not least, a fantastic butterscotch and cherry sundae to cool us down from the heat!

We ended over at Pine Ridge winery and had the tasting involving 6 wines - a rosé, chardonnay, and four different reds.

So, as you read this I also want to show you this song that's been playing in the background called Live Your Life, by Yuna. Out of Malaysia, she hasn't gotten a huge following here yet, but she's most definitely growing in popularity! She re-did a Nirvana song as well. Check her out.
