I’m not much for drinking alcohol, especially if it tastes like alcohol. Funny, I know. But I prefer mixed drinks that are sweet and usually fruity, that give me just the right amount of buzz to loosen me up to laugh a lot more. Not enough to make drunk. And it doesn’t take much for that to happen. So if I’m drinking its going to be usually just one drink; its rarely wine. So going to wine country wasn’t on my Bucket List. Until I heard that Napa Valley in autumn is absolutely gorgeous.
Autumn is my favourite season. So…If you love autumn like I do, then seeing the Napa Valley in autumn is a must.
Instead of a splattering of autumn colours in the evergreen forests back home in BC, or role-reversal where there’s just an occasional evergreen amidst a blazing deciduous forest like on Cape Breton…Napa Valley in autumn is more like blankets of fall colours carpeting the rolling hills.
Blankets. Hills and hills of blankets laid out.
You aren’t looking skyward to see the autumn colours. You’re looking across the land, or down on top of it.
Golden yellows to deep crimson. Each field displaying the colours unique to the type of grapes they grow. Row upon row of changing colours. Come and see!!
So glad I brought my family to the Napa Valley at this time of the year. Beautiful. Even for non-drinkers.
