We are not wine connoisseurs. I know next to nothing about wines and may even be allergic to alcohol, but that didn't hinder us from gallivanting over to Wine Country during our jaunt up north. I hadn't been there for three years, and I was once again struck by Napa Valley's idiosyncratic charm. Its Mediterranean climate and endless rows of tranquil vineyards that day was a welcome change from San Francisco's perpetual foggy haze and congested metropolis. Since we are amateur sommeliers, we dropped by a couple of wineries recommended by lovely friends. We got to cavort in dense vineyards surrounding a Tuscan-style castle at the Castello di Amorosa and picnic beneath shady flora at V. Sattui. Wine tasting was top notch even though I don't know how to appreciate wine (why do people swish the stuff around the glass?). I think wine tasting that afternoon confirmed a higher probability of my alcohol allergy, but the fresh sandwiches, smoked Gouda, dry salami, and feta-stuffed olives underneath grand oaks afterward made the relaxing day completely worthwhile of a returning sojourn. Cheers!
