more of Napa

While driving around in Napa Valley we were very curious about this building, what was it? What could be there it just looked amazing, set so far back from the road and up on a hill, what the heck was that place all about. Then as we drove into the driveway to find out what this was all about we realized it was the winery for OPUS ONE, one of the most expensive wines out there.

just look at the way that you come into the winery, it's something else.
they only let a certain number of people in at a time and you had to pay $30 dollars for ONE tasting of ONE kind of wine so Fer and I shared. I mean that's more than we generally spend on a whole bottle but it was an experience and worth it to say we've tried this wine. For me I wouldn't spend the money to buy a bottle of Opus One but that's because it's out of my price range but it was a beautiful place to visit and I highly recommend this to be a stop on our tour at least to check it out.
after Opus One we checked out this cute little winery Peju Province, it was a nice little place with lot's of tasting rooms.
one of our favorite wineries on the trip was this one, V. Sattui Winery it was so fun and so busy. There were tons of people buzzing around but not overcrowded. What was really nice about this place was that they had a picnic area and a little section of the winery sold bread, cheese and cold cuts so we were able to put together a few things to make a little picnic. The wine was very tasty as well.
