Nick is still flying a lot when he's not in school, and last weekend he flew Don and Kellie to Napa, California, and they very generously invited me. WooHoo!
So with Cayenne and Acacia staying with the Luthys and Sturms, we joined the Gosneys and a limousine full of friends and experienced Napa in style.
Our crew at Castello di Amorosa.
Just enough glasses for the 9 of us!
Actually, the real tasting rooms were far more intimate and fun.
The castle has four stories below ground as well.
One of the lads in our group works at a winery and we got an extra-special tour. So special, in fact, that said winery will remain unnamed because he would get in trouble. But I can say that the beautiful woman next to me in the vat is his Mom!
If you look closely you'll see spouts on the front of the stainless steel. He had a key that turned them and magically filled our glasses.
And to top it all off, look who joined us for dinner one evening!
(Sophie and Alan live about an hour from here.)
