Hello and Happy Friday! Yesterday I shared a set of photos from our trip to Napa Valley last weekend in my post Weekend Getaway: Napa Valley & Morimoto. Today, I am sharing more photos from our wonderful weekend in wine country. Our second day in Napa Valley, we had some time to kill in the morning before meeting our friends for lunch and wine tasting. So what did we do? Hit the Napa Premium Outlets, of course! The outfit above is what I wore shopping, but then it warmed up and I changed into a light J Crew jacket for the rest of the day. I may have purchased a few things at the Banana Republic outlet...it was a double points day after all. ;)
We met up with friends for lunch at Hog Island Oyster Company, where we enjoyed a sampler platter of that day's fresh oysters with bubbly rose as well as a delicious seafood stew. This particular location is in a market in downtown Napa, but next time we want to visit the Hog Island oyster farm itself! After lunch, we chose three wineries for tasting: ZD Winery, Frog's Leap, and Round Pond. Check out the photos below!
Snapshot at ZD Winery - what a pretty view!
Group shot in the back patio of Frog's Leap. The grounds are just lovely and it is definitely a place I want to return and spend more time!
Food and wine pairings at Round Pond. I have been a wine club member at Round Pond since 2009, and it is always a pleasure to visit! They make amazing cabernets and a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone!
I hope you enjoyed these photos, and thanks so much for reading!
