Photo Essay: 24 Hours in Napa

It finally happened. My two best friends and I actually decided on a date to go on a vacation together. The three of us work full-time and go to grad school and even though our vacation was a mini one – an overnight in Napa, it was a much-needed and relaxing break. Many thanks to Kristin Luna from Camels & Chocolate for going on her girls’ trip to Napa and thereby kicking my butt and motivating me to actually make my own girls’ trip happen, otherwise the wonderful photos of food, wine, and blissful nothingness that you are about to see might not even exist.

First stop was lunch at the famous Oxbow Public Market which features specialty merchants and restaurants.

Next, we hit the wineries including Trefethen.

And also Frog’s Leap Winery, which is known for their organically grown grapes.

Dinner in Downtown Napa was at the amazing Italian eatery, Oenotri.

After a night’s sleep at the Chardonnay Lodge, we visited Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery for breakfast.

Much needed relaxation was found at The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. For you Bay Area residents, ask for the Good Neighbor discount to use the salt baths, saunas, and warm pools without breaking the bank.

We couldn’t drive back to the city on an empty stomach. Five minutes from the spa is The Girl & the Fig – a delicious finale to an incredible weekend.

Home.
