wine makes me sleepy

J&C took us on a fantastic winery tour through napa valley today. It was great fun and definitely made me sleepy. But I am not sleeping...I am blogging. Oh well.

Our first stop was Goosecross Cellars. The pourer was generous with the portions and the wines were fabulous. We picked up a bottle of Chenin Blanc. 

Next stop was lunch at the Napa Grill. Also amazing. Then we proceeded to Rombauer.

We finished our tour with a stop at the Chateau Montelena. This is the winery in the movie Bottle Shock about the 1970's win of California wines over French wines in a blind taste test. The Chardonnay was spectacular.
