Just one week ago I got home from a brief, yet much needed getaway with my family. My dad turned 60 at the end of February, so we whisked him away to paradise to celebrate – wine country. Needless to say, I’ve been a little sad since we got back. You can see why.
Highlights included: my giant coconut macaron at Bouchon Bakery, escargot and roasted chicken at Bouchon Bistro, perusing Oakville Grocery Co., the most beautifully merchandised market I’ve quite possibly ever seen, the intimate tasting and Cab Franc at family-owned Titus Vineyards, becoming a Sparking Rosé convert at Domaine Chandon (seriously, please try it now), Yountville, CA in general, St. Helena shopping (especially St. Helena Olive Oil Co., they’re packaging is divine), and Napa Valley Lodge, where there was a fireplace in our hotel room and champagne breakfasts every morning.
Now, is it 5:00 yet? This post has me craving some Rosé.
