    Travel & Adventure – Dean & Deluca Napa Valley ๐Ÿท ๐Ÿ‡

    Dean & Deluca
    607 St. Helena Hwy S, Saint Helena, CA 94574 (Just off highway 29!)

    After our wonderful tasting experience at Prager Winery & Port Works, we stopped into Dean & Deluca for a bit of epicurean perusing. Dean & DeLuca is a chain of fabulous gourmet grocery stores for foodies. The first store was established in New York City in September 1977, in the SoHo district, a rather upscale area in lower Manhattan.

    Known for itโ€™s unique selection of meats, cheese, freshly baked bread, and of course, the vast array of gourmet chocolate truffles, this is the perfect place to pick up all the fixins for a decadent picnic in between visiting wineries.

    Travel & Adventure – Rombauer Vineyards

    Rombauer Vineyards

    3522 Silverado Trail North, St. Helena, CA 94574, Phone: (800) 622-2206

    We headed North on the Silverado Trail for a tasting at Rombauer Vineyards. After driving up the curvy, narrow road to the winery, we were greeted by a few colorfully painted cow sculptures and gorgeous landscaped gardens. The winery is located atop a sunny knoll surrounded by giant trees that offer the perfect shield from the bustling valley below. As we stepped from the car, a tranquil, quiet peacefulness overcame our senses and the playful sound of songbirds danced through the air.

    Le Voov! Restaurant Review: Boon Fly Cafรฉ ๐Ÿด ๐Ÿท

    We began our second day in Napa with breakfast at the Boon Fly Cafรฉ. This contemporary roadhouse restaurant has a fun, bubbly atmosphere and an eclectic menu full of scrumptious culinary options. Our morning dining delight started with an order of the signature Boon Fly mini-donuts. These cute, mini-sized wonders proved to be an excellent dipping partner for their rich, dark roast coffee.

    For my meal, I ordered the Chilaquiles with scrambled eggs. To my surprise, the eggs were outrageously light and fluffy, pairing beautifully with the deep seasonings and the freshness of the accompanying salsa. This combination made the dish a true winner in my book.

    Guess Where I Am…? ๐ŸŒŽ

    Napa Postal Mushrooms! We came upon this glorious stone mushroom installation in front of the post office while wandering through Napa Valley wine country. The long shadows of the autumn light made for a dynamic, interesting composition. ๐Ÿ„ ๐Ÿท ๐Ÿ‡

    Restaurant Review – Zuzu Tapas & Wine Bar ๐Ÿด ๐Ÿท

    Zuzu, located in Napaโ€™s historic Old Town, has masterfully blended the culinary traditions of Spain and South America with the warmth of Mediterranean dรฉcor to create a true gem. The complex layering of flavor and spice in each dish was uniquely divine.

    Our server Darlene was very knowledgeable and made some fantastic suggestions for our maiden voyage at the restaurant. Zuzuโ€™s signature sangria was delightfully fresh and fruity. Given the ease with which the first glass went down, I had a great appreciation for the speedy arrival of our first plates!

    Travel & Adventure – Napa Valley, CA ๐Ÿ‡ ๐Ÿท

    We had a few beautiful days to spend in Napa during the month of January. Our inspiration you ask? Seventy degree weather in the middle of winter! Frequently I forget that Napa Valley is just over an hours drive from the San Francisco Peninsula (approx. 70-miles). So, my partner in crime and I packed a small overnight bag and headed to the wine country!
