Napa Valley is just 30 miles long and a few miles wide,
 but is home to over 400 wineries.


We first visited Napa mid October and the valley was busy harvesting and crushing.  The entire valley had the smell of wine in the air.   We were staying at Vineyard RV Park in Vacaville at the time...

SONOMA WINE COUNTRY
Where do we go?

While you are staying at Vineyard RV Park in Vacaville, you may want to visit the birthplace of wine country, Sonoma, California.

One of the things I really love at the Vineyard RV Park is all the beautiful flowers, trees and landscaping.  At Vineyard RV Park, they really have grape vines draped around the club house and they are laden with beautiful bunches of grapes this time of year.   The smell of Jasmine on the way to the laundry room makes even washing clothes a pleasant experience.  
Watch the slide show and see what I'm talking about!

Our late luncheon, early dinner here will always be a fond memory. 
We just happened upon this place...didn't know anything about it, but the menu looked
 very interesting and the prices were more reasonable than we had seen at a number of other restaurants in town.
