Wining My Way Through Napa

When I started this blog it was after the Napa fires, and I wanted to know what I could do to help. Winemakers said that the best thing I could do was to buy Napa wines, and to encourage people to still come and enjoy the wineries.

This week I have been having a great time visiting this beautiful area, and experiencing the best that Napa has to offer, and that's a lot! It makes so much more sense to me now that I have visited and experienced the valley - there is so much to see and do, even though it's a rainy, cold week in Napa.

They call this time of the year Cabernet season, because it's a great time to enjoy the bold tastes of a great Napa cabernet and to pair it with some warm, inviting comfort food.

It's been hard to choose which wineries to visit, but I started with Mondavi and I wasn't disappointed. I'm learning as I go, and now I know to ask for the wines that you can only buy at teh wineries, are they old vine grapes, and are the grapes grown there or some place else.

I'm looking forward to sharing what I have learned and tasted!
