Seize the Day and Make Memories

Wine country is burning. I know, there are many more problems in the great world today, but still, wine country is burning. This is sad and personal to me. Signorello Estate  and Pine Ridge Winery has burned.

My husband and I have spent two vacations in Napa tasting wines. We don’t go too often, in 2010 and 2015. I had already broached the subject of a wine vacation for our thirtieth wedding anniversary in 2020 and he was on board with this idea.

Signorello Estate and Enoteca

I found this cool experience on line. It seemed a little pricey, but what the hey. A five course wine and food experience, paired with Signorello Estate wines. It was a two hour lunch.

We enjoyed this so much, we repeated the experience five years later.

In 2010, one didn’t just pull out their camera or phone and film their meals.


It appears I didn’t snap photos at lunch in 2015 either! It was a lovely time there. Great views from the pool area.

Napa burning just makes me sad. Go for that experience NOW. Kayak down that river. Go zipline. Visit that expensive restaurant, drink that nice glass of wine. You don’t know that it will be there tomorrow.

Pine Ridge Winery

Carpe diem. I think I am going to go buy a Stag’s Leap or Stags’ Leap wine today in honor of wine country.
