Napa Valley

We were at Dierk's in Santa Rosa for breakfast before 9am. Our first wine tasting reservation of the day was at Sterling Vineyards, mainly for the aerial tram and scenic view of the Napa Valley.

Groth in Oakville was next. They are known for lovely full-bodied reds but we enjoyed their white wine, too.

After a quick stop across the street to see Silver Oaks' beautiful new building we went to Rutherford Grill for lunch. It was excellent.

We relaxed in the condo for dinner with Big John's crabs and a nice Jordan cab. "Bottle Shock" provided the evening's entertainment. The movie tells the story of the 1976 judgement of Paris where the US won the blind wine tasting contest, which elevated California winemaking to a respected status around the world.
