As you know I went to Napa the other weekend to celebrate my 25th birthday with my sister Kim, Sarah, Courtney and Sydney. We had such a fun time and a full recap and vlog video is coming soon but I wanted to share one of the highlights from the trip: our tour at Chandon!
I'm a long time lover and #1 fan of Chandon so I knew that had to be our first stop in Napa. We toured the grounds, learned the process of how the sparking wine is made and immersed ourselves in a full history of the company. Our guide, Debbie, was one of the most knowledgeable people and the best guide I've ever had.
After that, we sat down for an actual tasting -- 5 of their sparkling wines and three of their regular wines. I love all Chandon but this was my first time trying the etoile brut and I was in heaven. I think that was a group favorite too. We loved it so much Debbie gave us a second bottle for after our tasting was done as a happy birthday present. She seriously was the best!!
Once we were "officially" done with our tasting, we moved over to a little table in the courtyard and grabbed some snacks and had girl talk before our next tour. In all honesty, we could have stayed there all day and been just fine! If you're ever in the area, be sure to stop by for a drink or tour -- you will not regret it!
The weather was perfect this day for sitting outside and drinking some really good sparkling wine. I wore this shirtdress for the day with a sweater for when it got a little colder in the shade or when the wind would kick up.
