After finishing up at Cakebread (after a tasting and a fabulous tour of the grounds), we headed for lunch at Oakville Grocery. It is a little fresh grocer along the side of the road where sandwiches are made to order and can be enjoyed with a glass (or bottle) of your favorite Napa wine out on the patio. The food was delish and we all needed a little food in our bellies at that point so it was the perfect pit stop.
Next on the tour was the Paraduxx Winery where we tasted their two whites and a bazillion reds. My favorite was the 2008 Cabernet which was made during the worst growing season in recent Napa history. Yep, I'm a proud wine recessionista.
Last, but certainly not least, we stopped by Domaine Carneros for a sparkling wine tour. Our guide, Kathleen, was absolutely ridiculous and utterly inappropriate which suited us just fine.
