Hey my loves,
Have you ever been to Napa Valley or dreamed of going? I have and I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite girls trip ever! I have always wanted to go to Napa but was waiting for the perfect group of girls to go with. And here we are… myself, daughter, daughter in law and my other two sons girlfriends. We went for a four day (long weekend) trip and we wanted to make every minute count, while not over doing it! We chose to stay at an Air B&B right in the heart of downtown Napa. Great choice, but, honestly anywhere you decide to stay in the breath taking country side or in one of the quaint towns of Sonoma Region will be a perfect stay. It’s all within a 45 minute drive with spectacular views everywhere you go. So don’t over think too much on trying to find the perfect place to stay.
We had chose 3 vineyards to get our wine tasting Sonoma experience. Domaine Carneros, Elizabeth Spencer, and Castello di Amorosa Castle. They were all fabulous! With each having their own charisma! It was nice scheduling them at different days so we wouldn’t get too tipsy but… what happens in Sonoma on a girls trip stays in Sonoma, right? It was fun tasting and learning all the varieties of wine from this gorgeous region. If I had to choose, my favorite experience was at Elizabeth Spencer’s Rose’ Party! Rose’ all Day was perfect for us girls. Nothing better than Rose’, delish food, and great people! Girls trips can’t go wrong with those 3 combinations!There is much more to do in the area than just sip on wine (like eating), if you can get yourself away from all that good wine tasting. Which is hard to do, I mean it is Napa Valley! But, if you are a foodie like myself, you will not be disappointed at all! Everywhere we chose to eat, if it was a hamburger joint or a 5 star restaurant, the food was unforgettable! As I like to say, it tasted like farm to table, my favorite kind of food!
We were so excited to go on the hot air air balloon ride, unfortunately due to the extreme foggy weather they had to cancel. We didn’t get to check that off our trip but its giving us another reason to go back! Once the weather cleared up, we were on the road in search for more adventure that this beautiful region had to offer us on our last day there. We found some of the local mom and pop shops, local artist show casing their beautiful work and quirky little shops. It was a great, carefree way to spend our last day here in one of the most prestigious place I have been.
I can honestly say, Napa Valley treated us well. Hospitality, great food and all that delicious wine! Definitely will be doing another girls trip there and I’m thinking sooner than later!
With Love, Catherine
P.S. when traveling, make sure you don’t over book yourself. Take the time to smell the flowers or in wine country, sip an extra glass of wine!
