through the golden autumn sunset, we sipped wine…
Although the late summer is the ideal time to visit any vineyard, there’s something about visiting
in autumn that makes it even more bright, exciting and romantic. Honestly, I am not an expert on
visiting vineyards and never been during the harvest season-I just find this time of the year sweet
and gentle and slow enough to remember and bottle-up every memory created. Summers are associated
with spontaneity in my opinion. They’re fast and exhilarating. But when you’re just looking to catch
up, this season is the absolute perfect, isn’t it?
So on my recent trip to America, I met up with my family in California and decided to spend a bit
of time in the wine country. Not my first time in the region, as it is the home to my extended
family, but it was definitely my first trip to Napa-a long overdue one.

It was like stopping time as we entered Yountville in the Napa Valley. Everything just seemed to go
by so gently, and we had very little care in the world. We ate and drank, drank and ate, and that
continued for so long that it almost seems a bit hazy… or perhaps that was just the wine. My brother,
pictured as Mr. c&é, was particularly excited for this portion of the trip as his intentions of
becoming a sommelier are quite strong. With each passing vineyard and name, he knew something eclectic
or unique about their grape. It was so inspiring to watch someone so young, develop such a grand taste.

We were picked up by Blacklane with the impeccable private car service, that gave us the drive up
to bond and catch up. And as we approached Yountville, we headed straight to Yountville’s
Ma(i)sonry, a wine collective and art gallery duo that appealed to all of us. The education for
my brother, the beautiful outdoor venue for myself and the lovely art along the tasting for my
parents. The was the preface of our trip to long, long day of tastings and tours.
