Our second and last wine tasting was at STERLING –
across the road and on top of a hill facing the castle !
Now – it was hard trying to select just where to go
after a 2 1/2 hour drive.
THERE ARE OVER 400 WINERIES IN NAPA VALLEY !
YES – a tram ride to the top and I do not like heights !
But I prevailed – fortified with Italian wine from the other winery !
You will be just fine
do not look down
keep your eyes straight ahead !
Then we arrived – some 3 to 5 hundred feet up !
Once there – I was okay
But I will be real –
I did not care for this wine
In fact after the second tasting
I just quit !
You had to walk a long ways between tastings !
Not quite sure what that was all about
But this was the jewel of the trip
as far as I was concerned
a open covered patio
with 360 degrees views !!!!
I was happy again
my two glasses
I saved them as I went
The last one was okay !
But – not something I would order
that is just me not being a wine drinker !
Time to go BACK DOWN !!!!!
Headed back to the bottom
and then we would start the return back to our base !
But we were told –
before we go back
you have to go to St. Helena’s
Now -just think – 50 and 60’s
open air root beer stands
music – girls on roller skates
burgers and fries and hot dogs
This is that with out the girls on roller skates
but the burgers and fries are on steroids! ( really good )
This is a must if you are in Napa Valley !
The place was spotlessly clean !
And the back was full mowed grass – putting green style
With picnic tables ( lots )
and trees for shade !
and the burgers were right on – not greasy !
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
And they also had their own home made ice cream !!!!
WHERE FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEET !
