We recently took advantage of Napa Valley being only an hour away. It seems hundreds of miles away when you are in wine country. It was sunny, calming and the food delicious. The day was a gorgeous summer one and perfect for a picnic and wine tasting on the lush grounds of some special wineries. Napa and Sonoma are on our bucket list and will not be scratched off until we leave. There is so much to explore up there.
