Napa valley - wineries, vineyard & wine! (Part 5)

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

Our last stop for the Napa valley trip was at Chandon. We had to drive up and down the highway to look for this place 3 times! Domain Chandon is suppose to be very good at making white wine and champagne.

For lunch, we decided to have a picnic at V. Sattui. It was lovely! We had pasta, salad and sandwiches. Have a look at the great selection of food, cheese and wine!

The next winery we visited was Clos Pegase, further down in Calistoga, CA.  Clos is the French word for an enclosed vineyard, and Pegase means Pegasus.

The Clos Pegase winery mixes modern art, different sculptures of Bacchus (god of wine) and antique items in decorating it’s courtyard and winery. The architecture utilizes the location’s natural landscape. (more…)

It’s the 18th of July, 2008 and no earthquake so far. For those of you who haven’t heard, there’s a rumor circulating around via email that the Philippines will suffer from an 8.1 earthquake today and there will be thousands hurt. (You can see a post about it too here.) Needless to say, believers and non-believers alike are taking extra precaution. On to a lighter note, I just came back from a nice trip to the US to tour the west coast with family and visit a friend. It’s been about 10 years since my last trip there. I enjoyed each day (though it’s rather a short vacation :P) and I am looking forward to sharing some of the pics with you. I hope that you enjoy it too.

 

Though I’ve been to the West Coast of the US several times before, I planned this trip to include some of the places I’ve always wanted to visit but have not been able to because it’s not part of the normal tour package. I was fortunate enough to have a kind and generous friend Ski to take me around. She also opened up her comfy home for my stay.

 

First stop – Napa Valley, CA’s wine country.

Hi Everyone!

I’ve decided to transfer my original blog onto this one as I realized that I am a bigger fan of Hello Kitty than I am of Kuririn. *sorry* Nonetheless, I hope you still come and visit my blog often.

I will kick off my new blog with entries and photos from my recent trip to the US. I went to SF, Las Vegas, Arizona on a 14-day holiday.

Cheers,

Mikee
