When in Rome....
or when in Napa do what Napians do.....
After the Ragnar relay my lovely in-laws swung by the finish line, scooped me up and took me to Napa for a much needed shower, a good nights sleep and then the next day it was time for some wine tasting!!!
To avoid that whole drunk driving thing we went on a tour with Platypus Tours.
Platypus Tours designs a tour including four tastings at wineries of their choice and a picnic lunch.
The first winery we went to was Whetstone and was by far my favorite. It was just so beautiful and the wines were amazing.
We were there during crush week, the time they pick and crush all the grapes to start the wine making process. Amazing amounts of grapes are crushed each year.

We got a good mix of smaller wineries and larger wineries. We also got to taste red and white wines.
The fun thing about the tour is it include people from the UK, Canada and Hong Kong and us Americans. It was such a fun time! I would for sure do it again. There are so many wineries in this area you could tour for years.
