Day 3, Napa/Carneros/San Francisco

Like the previous two days we hit it hard and didn't get to see as many wineries as we would have likes. However, of the four wineries we hit, at three -- Opus One, Stag's Leap Cellars and Hess Collection -- we tasted wine that retails at more than $100. We tasted the most expensive wine we ever had. The fourth winery, Domaine Carneros, specializes in sparkling wine; the winery is actually owned by Taittenger. Various photos are included.

After our last tasting we headed to San Francisco, arriving about 6 p.m. We stopped to take photos of the Golden Gate Bridge and then headed for the North Beach area, which is known for its Italian food.

We will get to see just a little bit of San Francisco tomorrow before we head out. Our flight is 5:20, but it's in San Jose. Luckily, it's a direct flight; we couldn't get a direct flight in/out of San Francisco. We'll get into Austin about 10:30. Unless there is free wireless at the airport, I won't post tomorrow.
