Paris in California?

Hungry after wine tasting in Napa?

With so many choices for delicious food, we tend to keep going back to
Bistro Jeanty in the town of Yountville.

Delicious food in a casual and charming setting.  The menu is quintessentially French serving items such as onion soup, duck confit and goat cheese pate, and escargots with garlic patis butter.  Service has always been nice and friendly, even when we had already finished lunch but stayed around to just drink wine while as they were setting up for dinner!  If the weather permits, sit out in the patio and enjoy the people watching.
A little piece of Paris in California.

Favorite places for wine tasting in Napa:

Chateau Montelena

We can thank this winery for putting Napa on the map when winning a blind tasting at the InterContinental Paris in 1976, know as The Judgement of Paris.

Alpha Omega

This family-owned, boutique winery caused me to fall in love with Chardonnay.  It has a farm house style setting with an indoors tasting room and a patio with gorgeous views.  Reservations recommended.


A beautiful, modern space where you can taste delicious cabernets followed by an in-depth tour of the art collection on property.
