5. O'Brien Estate Winery, Napa

The romance of wine country is alive and kicking at this 40-acre estate where guests sip wines labeled with amorous verse. One wine, the O'Brien Family Vineyards Seduction, has received three 94-point ratings from Robert Parker. The "poem" on the Seduction label reads:

Romance of the heart
Passion of the soul
A voluptuous wine with sensual flavors
And a velvet kiss.
Enjoy in good company.

During the hour-long tour, travelers are led through the winemaking process, starting in the vineyard and ending in the barrel room. A TripAdvisor traveler noted: "I've never had so much fun on a winery tour before." Tours are offered daily with a $20 fee; advance reservations required.











Napa Valley Film Festival 

We decided to become official Napa Valley Film Festival Patrons again this year to support this growing event. The founders, Marc and Brenda Lhormer, were also the producers of the movie Bottle Shock and were the founders of the Sonoma Film Festival. We urge you to make it to Napa Valley in November as this is a wonderful exploration of the world of film and film making. The directors and actors of many of the films attend this event and engage with the audience after the movie.

Fascinating insights into how these stories are brought to life and the amount of effort it takes to make any movie. We saw some wonderful films last year, movies we would never have had the chance to see in the theater, that opened our eyes to fascinating facets of humanity.
