Howell Mountain Wine Tasting

Hannah here! (Your other Main Street Sister)
One of the perks of working in a Napa restaurant is that wine tasting at the local wineries is free! Even more exciting is that our sommelier at Brix took us on a tour of three Howell Mountain wineries in Angwin, above the Napa valley. We went to O'Shaughnessy, Cade, and Outpost Wineries, and each was a beautiful and delicious treat!

The view along the road on our drive up. In the valley it was a cold winter day, but on the mountain it was warm and summertime!

The caves at O'Shaughnessy.

We ate a delicious lunch of duck cassoulet and mixed greens salad at Outpost Winery.

The most amazing fountain on the cliff of Cade winery.

The caves of Cade!

My favorite picture of the day, taken by my coworker Amanda!
