Napa Valley - Mondavi

Because we found ourselves drunk at 11 am we needed lunch. So we moved toward Yountville, a small town, absolutely adorable, where we had a very good meal and where, if you like, you can take air balloon and explore the valley on air. I'm certainly not interested since I hate to fly and I suffer from vertigo, but it must be something really interesting to do.

Anyway, after lunch we realized that many wineries close around 4-5 pm, so we had to rush and drink as much as we could!

The first stop was the Robert Mondavi vineyard. Our touring guide says that it's a must see place, where all the Napa Valley phenomenon begun.

So we paid our due respect to Mr Mondavi and tasted three wines (5$ each glass!) and realized that his wines are really really bad!!!! but his estate is a great place to see.
