When I found out we were heading to Napa Valley for BottleRock festival my heart started racing a little. I had always wanted to go to Napa Valley. The picture perfect scenery always made me question how this place can actually exist. Acres and acres of vineyards, beautiful countryside and winding roads… it just seemed too perfect – it doesn’t help that I’m also a lover of wine.
When we arrived in Napa you could instantly smell the fresh air. Fields and fields surround you and you get the urge to go off the beaten track to explore more. If you did you know you would come across something extraordinary. We stayed at a guest house owned by Barbara Colvin Hoopes; a white wood house situated right on a vineyard. The backyard was covered with rose bushes. The sweet smell woke us up every morning along with the sunrise.
Napa Valley is what I thought it was: picture perfect; the type of place you could go to write a book, recharge your batteries, clear your mind and just revitalize. It’s truly beautiful and I’m itching to go back!
