You know we love all of our wineries, but we are going to try to post pictures and give you a little bit of information on each one over the next few months. When you go to Napa, Sonoma & Healdsburg there are just so many great choices. We will try to help you narrow it down.
Rombauer is a MUST visit. We LOVE the wines, we love the gardens & we ESPECIALLY LOVE the people who make Rombauer special. This is a great place to hang out for awhile and walk through the garden. Even bring a little snack if you are so inclined, like we did with our wonderful French sistas! Be sure to ask for Marie or Holly for your tasting experience . . . and please tell them that the Candle Girls sent you!

We don't know who does the painted cows, but we will find out. They are wonderful!

Venice in the SNOW!

This year we really want to visit Venice when there is snow!

We love this special little corner . . . never been there when it's snowing though.

Bundle up & enjoy the views . . .

Can you imagine this weather?

Drink lots of espresso . . .

And live like a local. No tourists in this snow . . .

Apologies again for not saving the photo credits. Please let us know if you took any of these photos & we will be happy to post a link!
