We drove from SanFrancisco north to Naples, the winery country. It was a lovely drive. We stopped at the V Sutturai which was voted #1. We'd found a brochure at the hotel and when we got there we just followed all the cars it seemed. The parking lot was packed all the way to the back.
The day was gorgeous and warm and you can't even imagine all the people around there. I wish I had taken a picture to show you all the people outdoors. Out on a grill they were grilling and selling oysters in the shell and other delicacies.
Indoors people were purchasing cheeses and breads and ready made sandwiches and beautiful salads and taking them outdoors for a picnic. They had long rows of picnic table set up and everyone was like one big family it looked like.
beautiful sandwiches with yummy breads...
Look at all these delicious desserts...
There were beautiful flowers outdoors and all kinds of cute spots you could steal away and talk and enjoy the scenery.
They had a winery tour and you could sample wines. Look at all the people. This place was like gold mine!
They sold lovely gifts....
This winery is a 4th generation family winery. They were setting up a stage to the left of where we sat and were setting up pretty tables around it. Large bowls as centrepieces that were filled with oranges or lemons, sunflowers and other fruit. We asked and were told they were setting up for a SOLD OUT Italian Festival that night.
We had such a lovely visit to this winery and really enjoyed the drive too.
California has such beautiful places to visit..... I hope you have a beautiful day... Judi xoxo
