A Haute Honeymoon Getaway in California Wine Country
A romantic honeymoon drive up California’s Highway 1 (preferably in a convertible) is utterly divine. You may want to leave your heart in San Francisco, but the journey shouldn’t end there. Head north across the Golden Gate Bridge, and spend a day in beautiful Napa Valley.
Begin with brunch at Boon Fly Cafe, a cozy restaurant at The Carneros Inn (a well-appointed oasis to spend the night, if you decide). Breathe in the bucolic farmland as you sample the homemade donuts, farm fresh eggs and applewood smoked bacon. Once you’ve dined sufficiently, head to Domaine Carneros Winery, a hilltop chateau known for their traditional sparkling wines, and whet your palette with the best bubbly you’ve had since the wedding. Afterwards, the choice is yours: Wind through the seemingly endless roads of vines, and discover your favorite new Pinot.
Have grape expectations.
