That is hilarious! I am glad to be reading about your adventures.


G'day from Down Under! Love your blog, have just discovered it via Barbara over at WinosandFoodies. I'll come back and read more when I have some time, I love your writing.
Cheers, Judy



What a wonderfully hysterical post. Especially the part about Rubicon ... Rubicon ... who came up with that name?!

Have you read the book about the Judgement of Paris? It's on my list but I haven't committed as of yet since I don't know anyone else who has read it.

Wonderfully written as always.


Jaspreet, you are so sweet as always.

Judy, thank you so much! I'm glad you found me -- Barbara at WinosandFoodies has sent over so many lovely visitors.

Ivonne, I still haven't recovered from the Rubicon experience. Now, if I remember correctly, the Rubicon was a river in northern Italy that forbade generals from crossing with a standing army; famous because Julius Caesar broke this law. "Crossing the Rubicon" is analagous to reaching to the point of no return so I wonder if this figures into the naming of the vineyard? Coppola's premier wine is called Rubicon and has been for some time but I've wondered about the name...

I haven't read "The Judgement of Paris!" Thank you for telling me about it -- I'll check out amazon and let you know what I think.


This was such a fun post to read. I'm going to have to re-read this before I make it up to Napa so that I'll be well prepared! Checkpoints? How would have thought...


Geneve -- you'll love Napa. Checkpoints notwithstanding... :-)
