“Fun” doesn’t even begin to describe my time at Brown Estate winery in Napa Valley. It’s the subject of my last Photo of the Week, by the way. Click through the slideshow to see the sights from the day. This visit was part of a girls trip with a few of my faves from the Bay Area. It doesn’t take much for me to have a blast with these gals, but the fact that we had the whole place to ourselves was an added bonus. We got to learn about the owners, Dr. and Mrs. Brown, the history of the black-owned winery and the grapes used to create their wines. And we even got to go into the wine cellar and see the barrels on barrels on barrels of the wine varieties. Sky, the family’s trusty poodle, also added to the charm of being on the pristine grounds. The Brown Estate staff went above and beyond with the pairings. They were smackin! I fell in love with the Betelgeuse White and the Westside Zinfandel. This amazing day was all made possible by Veronica (so grateful for the invite!), who is a member of the winery. And a big thank you to David, the winegrower, and Sean, the tasting room associate, for making our visit extra special and super memorable. I can’t wait to return!
