Default For You Wine Snobs...

I've never been a wine person. But I got my first taste of Napa Valley this last weekend. My wife is long time friends with the Blankiet Family. Their wines are typically considered in the Top 10 of Napa.

Needless to say, I was impressed seeing over $9m in wine sitting in their wine cave. If you're ever in Napa, I highly recommed a tour...if you can get one.
The $30m house/estate made me want to work a lot harder...

I didn't make it to that one but I'll give it a try the next time my wife cons me into going to California. My favorite was Jarvis. Did you get a chance to visit any other places?

I mostly liked stopping at the track heading into Napa Valley.

That might be the better option vs stopping at the track after leaving Napa valley.
