Wine Trail

Monday is another nice day and so we decide to take a drive to Calistoga, which is about 30 miles south of where we are staying. We first stop at Cal Mart in Calistoga to get some sandwiches and potato salad for a picnic. We then drive to Dutch Henry winery which is on the Silverado trail. There are hundreds of winerys in the Napa area as well as the nearby Sonoma area. The Dutch Henry Winery specializes in small lots of handcrafted wines. We tasted some of the wines while petting one of their two beautiful cats who live there. We purchased a nice syrah which we will save for a special occasion. We then sat out at their picnic tables to enjoy our lunch and the nice weather and view.

A couple of pictures below taken on our drive home.
