Napa, Sonoma Wine Tasting - Booker and Butler ConciergesThe bellman rang our suite to tell us the ’64 Jaguar E-type rental car was waiting for us.  It’s our honeymoon and we are about to embark on a “bubbles tour” – stopping at every Napa winery that makes sparkling wine. Something our concierge put together for us.

When we were doing our Napa-Sonoma honeymoon planning we told Melanie at Booker & Butler that we loved Champagne so she set us up. First stop: Schramsberg. The caves there date back to the mid 1800’s. Dug by hand by Chinese laborers! We will definitely be toasting all their hard work.

Domaine Chandon Winery - Booker and Butler ConciergesAfter we motor down Valley a bit, we’ll stop at Mumm, then Domaine Chandon, then Domaine Carneros. Would it be over-the-top if we had a bite of caviar at each stop? Might have to swing through Dean & DeLuca.

Once we get back to the resort, the plan is to recover from our outing with a dip in the outdoor mineral pools, some cozy time by the fireplace in our room and dinner at the Michelin-rated restaurant here at the hotel. At sunrise tomorrow we have a private hot air balloon tour, a picnic in the vineyards and winery tour that includes a horse drawn buggy. I don’t want our honeymoon to be over but maybe we can make Napa and Sonoma our anniversary thing.
