Napa Valley Wine Tour ...

Day 9 - Sunday 11th August - Platypus Wine Tours, Napa Valley
~
There were 12 of us on our tour, 4 ladies from Oregan, Martha & Eileen from Boston, Mike & Esther from Utah and us.
~
First stop, Hagafen Wines
~
Razi Wines - with Fred Razi (hope we see our 6 bottles that Fred is shipping to us!)...

This is Whetstone Winery, a beautifully hand restored building.  The 4 wineries we visited were all boutique wineries that Platypus choose and we nearly had them all to ourselves.  It was quiet and not rushed which makes for great wine tasting.

Beautiful weather...

Our new found friends ...

Martha and Eileen with Fred Razi - "Come here, Fred.  We'll make a Fred sandwich!"
~
Sincere thanks to our driver, Toni, who kept us informed and took us to some great wineries.  When she first hopped on the bus and introduced herself she said "We'll have the air conditioning on but I'm gonna be having the side window open because, you know, I have my own private summers!".
