If you live on the East Coast going to Napa for the weekend is probably not going to be your idea of a weekend getaway. I mean it involves at least 5-6 hours on a plane each way. Not how I would want to spend my weekend. However if you have a long weekend coming up or if you live on the West Coast spending the weekend in Napa is my idea of paradise. I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend in San Francisco with friends and took a day trip to Napa. It was my first time and I loved every moment of it. Our first stop was Domaine Chandon. I am not sure if having champagne for breakfast is good or bad but I think it was a great way to start off the day. Domaine Chandon does both still and sparkling wines. I only did the tasting for the sparkling and it was amazing. I highly recommend the Rose. After getting our fill we moved on to our next stop which is by far my favorite, Hall Rutherford. We did a private cave tasting there and it was the most amazing experience. Not only are the grounds amazing (they sit up high so you have an amazing view of Napa Valley) but the wines are to die for. I will definitely be going back. Our last stop was Del Dotto
. By this point we had a lot to drink so it was a bit of a blur but I did remind how amazing the grounds were. Just another beautiful stop on the wine trail.
Let’s talk about what I wore. The dress was actually a hand me down that I pretty much wore to death this whole entire summer. I love it. Very comfy and it was free. Definitely on budget. The shoes are from Ralph Lauren and I got them on sale at one of my favorite spots in SF called Jeremy’s for only $60 bucks. My sweater is a cashmere blend from Banana Republic and I thrifted it for $10. So the grand total of my outfit was only $70 bucks. Not too bad if you ask me.
