From our West Coast office in Mountain View, California, we sometimes try to escape to surrounding cities over the weekend. We finally arrived in Napa after hours of traffic through San Francisco, and we just barely made it to the Trefethen Vineyard before it closed. Michael, an extremely knowledgeable (and charming) employee of the vineyard sat us outside on a beautiful courtyard and gave us a delicious tasting of their wines. We topped off the evening with a delicious dinner on the porch of Auberge du Soleil, overlooking the Valley as the sun set.
