This past weekend I was whisked away to Napa with some of my fellow food and travel blogging friends to experience one of the Seven Tickets to Your Paradise Sweepstakes trips with Hilton HHonors!
We had a busy weekend that consistented of dining at some of Napa’s best restaurants, hot air ballooning over Napa Valley and visiting and touring some of the most amazing wineries around.
I was lucky enough to get to experience the Your Ticket to Dine prize package, and here’s the deal… it was spectacular! I ate and drank wine t0 my hearts content and absolutely fell in love with Napa!
One of the highlights of this trip was hands down the food. Napa is home to some of the most amazing restaurants and I wanted to share my list of not to miss restaurants and some of the amazing food we had at each! There are literally hundreds to choose from, but I’ve picked out a few of my favorites…
On our first night we went to Oenotri! It was swanky and fun and the vibe was great!
The second we walked into the door, I felt like I was in Vegas! And that is absolutely not a bad thing! The crowd was way hip and the atmosphere was hot! People were there to have a good time and throw a bit of a party! The cocktails were great and the food was soooo good!
Last, but certainly not least was my meal at Auberge de Soleil. We went for brunch and it was basically the perfect setting for a relaxing and fun brunch.
It’s the perfect place to escape for a little brunch with a loved one.
And next time I go back, I’ll be sure to get reservations at….
These were all highly recommended and I can’t wait to try them next time!
All of the food and service was spectacular! It was truly a memorable weekend that anyone who enjoys food and wine would enjoy! What do you think?
