Napa & Sonoma

Every year right after harvest in early November, we take a trip to the beautiful northern California wine country... Napa and Sonoma. These are a collection of photos that span between 2008 and 2015.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape

In the summer of 2013 we visited two special appellations in southern Rhone Valley... Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas. Here are some photos from this beautiful part of France.

Valpolicella & Valdobbiadene

In the summer of 2015 we visited two wine growing regions in Veneto, Italy... Valpolicella and Valdobbiadene. The former known for their luscious reds and the latter for Prosecco, the Italian sparkling wine. Here are some photos from this amazing part of Italy.

Umbria & Toscana

In the summer of 2015 we also visited two other wine regions in central Italy, Umbria and Toscana. Montefalco and Sagrantino are two excellent wines that hail from Umbria. While Chianti is the prominent wine in Toscana, Brunello di Montalcino, which is also made primarily with the Sangiovese grape is arguably the king.
