Wine country in the rain

· long story short

Going on a belated birthday-related wine country outing today. Napa in the rain. We’ll be touring Domain Chandon where a friend is the chief wine maker. Maybe stop by Rafanelli as well.
I can’t complain about the rain. Lord knows we need it. And the ground smells good all around the house. Wine country in the fall in the rain might be picturesque. I just hope the winds have died down. Bushes and trees were thumping against the house all yesterday. On big vine-bush in front of the house toppled over last night. I wonder if we’ll see any damage up there?
