This is the fourth post of the series, Cali Tour. I'll be sharing stories & pictures from my parents' visit here in California. Other posts include: Stanford's Memorial Church, Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Wine Country was definitely on our list of things to do when my parents were here back in March. Even though Evan and I live only two hours south of Napa, this was actually our first time there! Oh - and while we drove through a storm on the drive there - it didn't rain once we arrived. Perfection.
Our first winery stop was at Sterling Vineyards. General admission is normally $25/person, but we found a $5 coupon for each admission on their website - saved twenty bucks! Admission included: aerial tram, self-guided tour, complimentary tasting of five wines and a souvenir glass.

|Hey, dad & mom!|
Cheers! We then started on our self-guided tour through the winery - the place was not only interesting but also absolutely beautiful. The building followed architectural designs found in Greece.
I also loved seeing all the barrels. Now that's a lot of wine!
Four of the tastings were set up throughout the tour, and the last tasting occurred in the tasting room. There was a huge deck with a beautiful view right off the tasting room.
I was a happy girl with that wine in my hand! I wasn't for sure how the day was going to play out in terms of how many vineyards/wineries we would visit. Let's just say, I have a few more posts to share. Oh yeah, and I tasted 23 wines that day. Oops! :)
