Napa Valley, June 2019

Recently, we had the opportunity to return to the Napa Valley for tastings and an early Summer escape.  It is always wonderful to be in the valley, having a chance to see friends, taste some amazing wines and enjoy the scenery.

Kicking off the tour, we headed to ZD Winery – a long personal favorite in Napa.  The setting of the winery has always been magical, but they also recently renovated their public spaces to make for an even better guest experience.  The winery celebrated their 50th Anniversary in 2018 and they are honoring tradition while embracing the future with their wines.
