Coming into the Napa Valley, the scenery changes dramatically.
Every square inch of unoccupied land is covered with grape vines.
I'm not a wine connoisseur at all, but my son Mark is. He was here for a few days, so we got to see each other.
We met up at Mumm Winery for a tasting of their sparkling wines. I liked the Demi-Sec the best.
The next day he got us invited to a private tour and tasting at the Ovid winery. Their managing partner spent well over an hour with us.
Their winery is located high on a hill above the Napa Valley, and the tasting room offered a gorgeous view.
Do I look like I know what I am doing? Believe me, I don't!
This is their pride and joy, and the best wine I've ever had. At $300 a bottle, it's also the most expensive wine I've ever had. Of course, I couldn't help but wonder what they were going to do with the rest of the bottle...
