Going to Napa Valley wouldn’t be complete without visiting a few wineries even though I can’t drink alcohol until my diet is over. Not that I love wine either. But I don’t mind having a couple of glasses of gewürztraminer with my meal.
Kit’s a wine aficionado and he chose the wineries we went to. I must thank him for choosing Chateau Montelena Winery which was one of the most beautiful wineries I’ve ever been too.
Wine tasting at Chateau Montelana cost $20 and you get to try 5 kinds of wines. Since Kit and Ariel were in the food and beverage industry all they had to do was show their business cards and they didn’t have to pay the fee. I showed them my blogger business card and to my surprise and delight I got they waived my fee too.

They had samples for all the cheeses and I tried the bold or strong cheese. I’m sorry to say but they were awful! I had to spit out some of them. Any supermarket cheese tasted better than these. The ones I tried didn’t even taste like cheese and I know my cheese.
The girl and the fig is a restaurant that I would like to try the next time I go back.
