“The changing of colors is always a comforting reminder that endings are just preparation for new beginnings.”
I am always a sucker for all things fall. So on a Sunday afternoon after seeing a few photos of Napa Valley online, I dragged my husband out of bed and set out to experience all that Napa Valley had to offer for fall. The first stop was at the Oxbow Market in Napa for a quick bite at 5 Dot Ranch to fuel up for the day. The rest of the day was spent driving down Silverado Trails stopping at numerous wineries to take in views, enjoy fine wine, and of course to capture the colors of autumn.
As the day winded down, we headed to the Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in Saint Helena for a treat and of course a cappuccino. I love this restaurant for a few reasons. You can walk around and enjoy the gardens, get local produce at their “farmer’s market” and of course enjoy their delicious food. It feels as if you’re at someone’s farmhouse enjoying a sunny afternoon. (Read my full review of the restaurant here).
Afterwards we made our way back to Yountville to enjoy the rest of the views. When I think of fall I envision Napa. The vineyards have all of the colors from burnt orange, bright greens and stunning shades of yellow. The ivy across the brick walls is mesmerizing and I couldn’t take my eyes off it. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend an afternoon.
Bon Travels, Xx!
