A Trifecta Plus Two: My Top 5 in Napa
My idea of a perfect day is spending time and money in the Napa Valley.
Perfection would include The Five Elements: trinkets, wine, chocolate, massages, and golf.
#1 We call it the Disneyland Winery of St Helena and love to pop in for a flight of Cabernets at Hall winery. Check out the life-sized statue of the Albino Camel, the ginormous mosaic of old jeweled sweaters, the glowing red bathrooms, the eclectic gardens, clever signage…it’s a trip and we fly first glass…
A Duet: A Day in the Napa Valley is just not right without a stop at Mecca- aka Dean and Deluca for grande cups of the very best coffee and a mini loaf of the decadent Chocolate Babka. A sampling of exquisite picnic delectable is a must.
#3. Every Body loves The Bliss for the Body Massage at the spa at Auberge du Soliel Is beyond description – let’s just say it is good for the soul and body.
