Anniversary weekend in Napa Valley

My hubbs and I had the greatest time in Napa this past weekend as we celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. I had never gone wine tasting or a tour of a winery, so we did just that. We ended up on south St. Helena at a winery called Castello di Amorosa. Those of you that watch "The Bachelor" may recognize this "castle" winery. It is very historic and to see the history of this facility during our 1 hour tour was amazing. We even got to do some wine tasting at the end which was so fun and yummy!! We ended up leaving with 3 bottles of wine! :-) That evening we had a very nice dinner at Cole's Chop House in downtown Napa. VERY good and recommended if you are ever in Napa!

The next day hubbs said we couldn't leave town without trying Gott's Roadside (yes, we did ALOT of eating this weekend!) I had the best cheeseburger on earth there... yum!!!! Jay had the Ahi Tuna burger (I can't eat anything raw, hehehe!) But he said it was the best and I'll take his word for it. LOL!

Here are a few of the many pics that you know I'll be creating a mini album for sometime soon when I find the time! hehe! Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

Happy anniversary! It's good to hear of couples celebrating anniversaries- I get so sad sometimes when I bloghop and encounter many women who've separated from their husbands :^(
