A Great Week In The Bay Area

No Gravatar

Is Napa still considered Bay Area? I’ll say yes.  Some define the Bay Area as the outreach of BART (for those unfamiliar with the acronym, that’s our train system here).   Napa County still touches part of the Bay waters – the San Pablo Bay waterway that borders the Carneros District – and provides a nice cooling effect for the varietal of grapes that prefer lower temperatures that are grown in that region.

In any case, as a sports fan, foodie, and wino, there’s no better place to be than here in Napa this weekend.  Our Giants are on a winning streak – Matt Cain pitched a perfect game yesterday; the US Open comes to town; summer season fruits are here, so Farmers’ Markets are bustling; and of course, there’s always the wine country beckoning for a visit.  It’s the quiet before the storm – just before the high season of visitors begins here at the Chateau, so we’re relatively quiet for now.  Not to mention, three new restaurants opened up in the little town of St. Helena

Apart from anticipating the weekend’s searing heat, it’s a great time to be in the Bay!
