Quick trip to Napa

We spent the day in Napa and it was wonderful.

We got another dose of El Nino rain. Around ten inches of precipitation dropped over the past week. Here is a creek with actual water in it!

We had lunch at Farmstead in St. Helena. I had the pork chop on a bed of broccolini and jalapeno grits. I polished off the plate, and almost ate the bone.

Most of the ingredients from the restaurant are sourced from Long Meadow Ranch. Here is their work vehicle.

We then spent a couple of hours at Joseph Phelps Winery for a terrace tasting. There weren't a lot of people so we practically had the place and the wine tasting guy to ourselves.
