Morning in Napa

Spending part of the week in Napa, this week, primarily visiting with St Supery Winery in Rutherford, and then a few others, plus a day in San Francisco.
Yesterday we went out to the Dollarhide Ranch in Chiles Valley, and had a great seminar on Ampelogrophy (vine identification) plus a climate and soil discussion. Tasty lunch by the lake, enjoying St Supery Rose, Cab and Sauv Blanc, plus a fabulous selection of local foods.

Then back to dinner at Morimoto, which was good, not great, but very enjoyable experience.

Today off to Rutherford for library tasting and a couple of other seminars, plus a barrel making demo later today.

Everybody I'd talking about Bottle Rock, a huge music festival here in the valley this weekend. Big names and loads of fun with people starting to pile into the area. I'll be gone, but it looks great.

Thanks, Brian
