Corison Winery and Cakebread Cellars

Corison Winery
We visited two more wineries in Napa Valley before going back to San Francisco. The first stop was Corison Winery where we were greeted by this friendly labrador.

Kit took this picture on his cellphone. We sat there playing with the dog for a few minutes before going in the winery. I could have stayed there longer but the dog ran inside so I followed her. I suddenly missed my own labradors.

The oak barrels were stacked in the tasting room for a very nice ambiance.

She was so excited to play with the kid that she started to ‘nibble’ on peoples’ legs and was distracting the wine tasting. She was asked to leave and I was surprised to find out that she was the neighbor’s dog. She just loved visiting Corison Winery from time to time.

We went out the back and looked at the beautiful vineyard.

Our next stop was Cakebread Cellars. Kit called in advance to make an appointment for our wine tasting.

This guy told us that Cakebread Cellars wines are available in Manila and I found out that it is distributed by Happy Living Philippines Corporation which also distributes Chateau Montelana wines which we also visited.

They gave us the glasses we used for wine tasting to take home as a souvenir.

That’s the end of my trip to Napa Valley. Thanks again to my friends Ariel and Kit for taking me there. I really enjoyed all the restaurants we ate at and even though I can’t drink wine for the moment I appreciated going to the wineries too.
