Weekend Details

grape vines at Corison Winery

I spent this weekend with my pals in the Napa Valley, and as expected it was a beautiful and gloriously gluttonous mini-vacation. At the recommendation of a friend, we stayed at Yountville’s Napa Valley Railway Inn, an adorable little hotel with rooms in railcars within walking distance to some of the Valley’s best restaurants (making getting to dinner at Bouchon and Redd entirely way too easy). We also ventured into Sonoma a bit (the drive between the two valleys was absolutely stunning) to sample what the neighboring valley had to offer – since there’s obviously a huge shortage of wine and food in Napa  – and weren’t disappointed, with lunch at The Girl and the Fig and delicious zinfandels at Ridge some of the trip standouts.

Other new favorites in Napa were Vine Cliff (delicious chardonnay and cabernet and sweeping views of the Valley) and Corison (stand-out cabernet by one of the Valley’s first woman winemakers).

And now – food and wine detox. Phew.
