After doing a lot of research and getting input from friends about wineries in this area we chose to go to Mumm Napa winery for a tour and tastings. Most if not all of the wineries use to offer free tours and tastings. Now, few have tours and all charge for tastings. That’s why we reduced the number of wineries to visit from three to one!
Mumm Napa is located on the Silverado Trail which is one of two highways running through the Napa Valley. We saw many wineries and vineyards as we drove up the Trail to the vineyard. Beautiful fields of grape vines lined the highway both coming to Mumm Valley on the Silverado Trail and going home down Highway 29.
The resort we are staying at is on a peninsula between two bays which makes for a beautiful ride going and coming from here. We’ve seen what looks to be blackberry bushes all along the side of the roads. Today we went out and stopped at those bushes and they are blackberries. I’ll be bringing my buckets and bags all along those bushes to get more blackberries while the getting is good.
We are going into San Francisco tomorrow to see more of the city. Hopefully this trip to San Francisco won’t be filled with all the timing problems we experienced the first time. We are driving in our truck so hopefully all will go well!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
