Our first stop was Monticello. Yep, that is a replica (though smaller) of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
Enjoying wine and conversation with our hostess.
Grapes on the vines.
Next stop was Silver Oak where our host was kind enough to crack open the new release of the 05 Alexander Valley Cab which isn't being offered for tasting until next weekend for their big release party. Oh boy is it good!
The symbol of Silver Oak, the tower.
When you are in the Napa Valley you have to stop into the Oakville Grocery.
It is stuffed full of gourmet delights.
You can barely walk through the market it is so packed full, but that is half the charm and fun of it.
