Napa - Day 2

The owners of the loft we're staying in recommended Ritual Coffee Roasters for breakfast, but they didn't mention that it was inside the Oxbow Public Market which is chock full of gourmet food and shops. In addition to a delicious latte from Ritual, I also enjoyed a strawberry almond waffle from Five Dot Ranch and Cookhouse, amazing!
Next up was the rose tasting at Domaine Chandon, if only every morning could start this way. The property was beautiful, the tour guide knowledgeable, and the sparkling wine delicious.
We then headed to Chef Thomas Keller's original Bouchon Bakery for some yummy macarons - mocha, chocolate and pina colada. Probably not the best lunch, but we were celebrating my birthday eve!
After some amazing nachos from La Luna (not pictured), we headed to the Francis Ford Coppola-owned winery, Inglenook. The history of this property is quite fascinating - you can read about it on their website - and the scenery is beautiful. We enjoyed a guided tour and an estate tasting of four wines paired with cheeses. There is also a museum onsite which houses many of Coppola's cameras and other artifacts from the last 135 years of the winery.
