Napa Part 1

Last week we went on our first official family vacation to Napa! My parents joined us for the trip and we stayed at a beautiful home off Atlas Peak Road. It was a week full of sunshine, family wine and lots of great wine!

The first day was just the Day family and we spent the day exploring the town outlet malls, visiting Beringer and getting to know the lay of the land before my parents arrived that night.  The next day we went to Trent Moffett's home to taste his delicious wine while overlooking his vineyards. He has become a fired of my parents so it was such a that to sit under a gazebo in his yard to taste. Such a personal touch! Later we headed out to Shypoke's vineyards to taste at their private home as well. Talk about connections! :) Christian even got to see their chickens and we got some fresh eggs to take home. Again, the wine was SO good!

On Day 3 we went up a never ending, winding road to Brown Estate. Boy was it it worth the drive! We had a tour of their wine caves and property, followed by a food pairing tasting. Here are some pictures of our tasting at Brown:

C wanted a taste too!
