Pruning season

Pruning season

Napa Valley’s weather has made it possible for farm workers to prune in the vineyards. All is dormant right now, with evening lows in the 30s and daytime highs peaking in the low 70s. Tough life, but somebody has got to do it. These vines are next to the ever-popular Silver Oaks Winery on the Oakville Crossroad — if my memory serves me correctly.

Home on a hill

Home on a hill

Knock, knock. Anybody home? I just couldn’t take my eyes off this home perched near a hilltop in the Napa Valley. This photo was taken from Quintessa Winery. What more can anyone ask for — great weather, great views and great wines all in the Wine Country.

Dine at funky wine country diner

Dine at at diner

The Fremont Diner was my stop spot for breakfast earlier this week. From the outside it doesn’t look real exciting. But when you sit down, the food is no nonsense great to eat at fairly reasonable prices. The eatery is open for breakfast and lunch and there is plenty of it. A normal person will not leave hungry. The Fremont Diner is west of Napa in Sonoma County heading toward Highway 101 and Marin County/San Francisco/Fairfax etc. Check it out and drop me a line about what you think.
