The 5 Elements: trinkets, wine, chocolate

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.


Fore: We love to play a round of golf at Silverado Country Club. It’s a Robert Trent Jones course.

#5.The real piece d’ resistance is dinner at the most famed and fabulous Bistro Jeanty in Yountville is the perfect  See The Menu: 


The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits.
