To finish off a great week in California, my friends and I headed to Napa for a quick day trip. We left bright and early so we could stop in Yountville, which is home to Bouchon Bakery, one of only five locations across the U.S. We waited a half an hour to order from the bakery for breakfast due to its popularity, but it was all worth it. I got a mocha latte, sausage pastry, coffee cake, chocolate bouchons, and a snickerdoodle macaron (not all at once). The sausage breakfast was incredible and so was the macaron and latte. I could have done without the coffee cake and the chocolate bouchon tasted like a brownie bite. To top it off, Yountville is like a little Pleasantville, and if you do visit Napa, that might be a location to check out staying in.
We then headed to three wineries:
Clos Du Val: A gorgeous vineyard that my friends became wine members of. We had a great tasting, with attentive staff who gave us a lot of interesting information about the process.
V. Sattui Winery: This tasting room and winery was very cute, with a huge picnic area in the front. We got some red wines which were delicious, and so were their panini’s in the shop for lunch! This photo is actually of us on the way there!
Domaine Carneros: Our last stop on the wine tour, and this was sparkling wine! Such a beautiful estate that I would love to have an engagement party at some day!
Being such a wino, one day is definitely not enough in Napa. I would love to go for a weekend…very soon!
