A continuation toÂ SF Wine Country Adventures â€“ Sonoma.
One day in wine country wasn’t enough for our Winapolooza trip so we added in a second day. Â On day 2 we stopped by SausalitoÂ on our drive out, visited 3 wineries, toured a wine castle and ate at a ranch for lunch. Â All promptly followed by a deep slumber.
Napa Wineries: Day 2
- Castillo Di Amorosa: a magnificent castle that looks like it is straight from the movie Brave. Â We decided to do the tour, and i was extremely glad we did: a wine making process overview, castle history, wine tunnel tour, barrel tasting, a torture room, closed with a private underground tasting.
- Robert Mondavi Vineyard: Beautiful outdoor tasting grounds.
- Lunch:Â Farmstead at Long meadow Ranch
- Jessup Cellars: My favorite winery of the weekend. Â Delicious wines and a wonderful, knowledgable host.

Morning before Napa we stopped by Sausalito for some coffee and snacks for the car
On the way back from Napa our driver stopped at a high point for us to see the city lights- what a spectacular view it was!
