I am so excited about this. I drive through Marble Falls (which is only 8 miles away from the Southern Living Idea House in Horseshoe Bay) when I go to see my Aunt Janae in Fredericksburg. I've been wanting to take my friends to Marble Falls and Horseshoe Bay since, like, forever... now we have a good reason to go!
Check out this house.. it's AMAZING!!!

is tucked away on a residential street
It is one of the oldest wineries in Napa
It is able to stay where it is at because it's
a historic site
This winery is so worth the visit!
I loved it so much
I signed up for their wine club!
The 2007 Petit Sirah rocks!
All I can say is yummy!
I sliced a peach- drizzled it with honey - chopped up some fresh basil ( can you believe my basil is thriving in this heat? )- then topped it off with some goat cheese

As I mentioned previously, I was in Napa for a convention
I only got to visit a couple wineries
Shout out to my friend, Allison for scheduling it along with the limo
Madrigal was first on the list
I loved the 2006 Petit Sirah and the 2006 Zinfandel
I'd show you a picture, but they are in a box being shipped back to me!
Being first timer, I didn't think about how to get our wine purchases back to Texas.
Of course, where there is "wine" there is a "way"
Most wineries won't even ship to us until October because of the weather.

I was in Napa attending a
WineShop At Home convention
It was amazing!
We all stayed at the Meritage
We had a reception in the Cave
Look at that ceiling
I wish I had taken more pictures

On the way to Napa
with my gal pals,
Misty & Melissa
(remember them from our Trader Joe's Adventure?)
We spent the day (and night)
in San Francisco
Misty and I have never been there before
Melissa has lived there and couldn't wait to show us around
First stop, Buena Vista
Known for their Irish Coffee
It was yummy
man oh man
I think I grew some hairs on my chest
I wimped out and let Melissa have mine
