Napa & San Francisco {Day 2}

Domaine Carneros {Napa, CA}
On our second day in NorCal, we explored Napa, Sonoma, and some more of San Francisco.

The first thing on our agenda? -- a wine tour of Domaine Carneros in Napa!

As you can see, it was such a beautiful venue.


The sun was shining; it was a lot warmer in Napa than in San Francisco. The tour was informative, and was kept entirely indoors in this French-inspired "mansion" (some tours take you out into the fields, but not this one). Most of the tasting included only sparkling wine. Note: If you do not drink alcohol -- that is okay -- because you can opt out.

After the tour, we were free to explore the area as we wished. My sister, Rickard, and I snuck a taste of these wonderful grapes (shh!):

The grapes were so sweet, and tangy. Amazing.

After the wine tour, we were pretty hungry. We took the Trinity Road per my friend's suggestion to Sonoma. It is a beautiful drive where you get to see the other wineries and some ranches.

We tried out a Mexican restaurant called Maya. If you are ever there, I highly suggest getting their chicken burrito. That's what my husband had, and it was one of the best wet burritos I've tried.


After lunch, we walked around Sonoma and enjoyed the quaint and little town's parks, boutique shops, and "vibe".

After our day trip to Napa/Sonoma, we headed back to San Francisco....

We were welcomed back to SF with some crazy fog! We were at the viewpoints for the bridge, but at many times you could not even make out the bridge because of the fog!

And so we went back to my sister's apartment to hang out. My sister's place is walking distance from Coit Tower and in a very central location, so Rickard and I decided to walk up to the Tower and spend the rest of our evening there.

It is a lovely and very short trail up to the Tower. A little romantic and the perfect end to our time in San Fran. :)







The next day we headed to Big Sur...more to come!
