Napa valley is one of my most favorite get away spots here in the bay area. It’s pretty close and usually anyone you would be going with would be really happy to go with you. They have OF COURSE the WINE, and then they have the relaxation!
On this weekend getaway we were lucky to be going and staying at “The Meritage Resort and Spa” We had just happened to be going for a wedding. So we were able to have all the best things that Napa has to offer all rolled into one place. (The wine, Relaxation and the beauty of the wine country)
Easy to say we were SO happy with The Meritage Resort and Spa and such a great venue to have your wedding at in Napa by the way! And just going to though this in that we loved their food. Amazing!
We went to a couple of places over the weekend. But the number one favorite winery was inglenook. We did get there late but it was even better to come that late hardly anyone was there and we could just kick our feet up and relax with the most amazing view and calming feeling. (Francis Ford Coppola has a beautiful property!) We went in to the tasting room to pick a wine out to take home with us. We also love how they have these really cute wine cellar rooms to have a big party there. (That’s on the bucket list to do)
There are some great historic facts about inglenook along the walls as you walk into the winery. And not to forget that upstairs is some of Francis ford Coppola’s film history memorabilia. (Don’t want to forget about his Oscar)
It’s nice to go and grab a little tea or coffee in their café and go sit outside on the beautiful grounds of inglenook. (We are definitely going back here)
We were also able to meet up with some of our other girl friends. They just happened to all be on their girl’s getaway to Napa as well. We ended up meeting them at Durant and Booth right there on the St. Helena Hwy in Oakville. This place looks like they had just remodeled the tasting room. I love it and would say for sure to stop and take a look before going onto any other winery’s.
So if you find our self in Northern California and have a free weekend you must make your way to beautiful Napa Valley. And if you stay at the “The Meritage Resort and Spa” you must say hi to Garrett at the front door. He was super helpful and SO sweet. Enjoy!
Just about the bottom line on me: I love my faith, family, film, fashion and travel. And oh YES, a little obsessed with shoes!
