Birthdaze

Family OTW celebrated a birthday today in rather better weather than is usual back in a rather rain soaked Britain. We headed up The Napa valley for Breakfast in St.Helena and then visited ager-Martucci winery for an afternoon tasting.The heat combined with a generous pour subdued the various happy Brits and then driven by the designated driver Mrs OTW we headed for Marys pizza shack in Sonoma.This eatery is not exactly a culinary experience on the lines of The French Laundry in Yountville but over the years we have enjoyed the simple and tasty food plus the atmosphere around the square in Sonoma itself.The day ended with fine wine and chocolate cake at The Vino house.....a difficult day I know but somebody had to do it. Friday is the day for bottling the 06 vintage so suitably rested it will be all hands to the pump.......get your orders in now.
