Cakebread Stripes and Polka Dots

This week I am presenting yet another set of photos from our trip to Napa.  I think I just can't get over the fact that we left and are now stuck back in reality. These pics were taken mostly on the grounds of our first tasting which was at Cakebread Cellars.  It was definitely a fun and out of the ordinary tasting since they guide you all around the grounds and have you taste at several stations.  They call it "progressive tasting" which we did not experience anywhere else.  They are not stingy with the number of wines they give you to taste (unlike some places) and the tour was very informative but not boring.  Oh and I should add that the wine was pretty yummy too. This was a great place to start off the day.  We took many photographs here since we were still fully energized and hadn't yet drunk too much wine.  As I mentioned in the last Napa post, my best friend Maria, here in the photos joined us since she was just a short drive away coming from San Fran.  It was so good to see her even if just for one day.  Maria was wearing such a cute striped skirt from Anthropologie and she paired it with my polka dot chambray top also from Anthro.  Can you tell where we like to shop haha?  It was the perfect outfit for wine tasting. She went the opposite direction of me.  I chose to go bare legged in shorts and cover my arms with a blazer while she covered her legs and exposed here arms. You have to cover up somewhere in the crisp cool morning air in Napa Valley.  I am counting the days until my next short trip out there in October.

  3. i LOVE anthro- if it wasnt so expensive i'd clean it out each time i went there haha. and what a fun weekend!! i'd love to go tasting and actually learn about the process. and vineyards are just so gorgeous that it must have been lovely just being there. though i can only imagine how sluggish you get towards the end with all that wine ;)
