Luxe Lifestyle: Friday Vignettes: Kelham Vineyards

Our whole week in Napa Valley was spent visiting the most amazing vineyards, with each one bringing it's own unique reason why it made for a wonderful visit.  At one stop we'd be in awe of the history of the grounds, the next stop tasting in caves. An intimate tasting with the winemaker themselves, and a relaxed porch tasting had us saying each new stop was our favorite.  Our whole week had been meticously timed and planned (thanks to our wine-obsessed hubbies) to manage going from appointment to appointment and fitting in stops for great eats along the way. 
On our last day, we visited two wineries before lunch, and made our way to the fabulous Auberge du Soleil for a terrace lunch.  Not wanting to rush one of our last meals, we were actually left with an open afternoon! Left wondering if we'd be able to squeeze one last tasting in, we remembered a nearby vineyard that was recommended before we left.  And if there was ever a time to say that we saved the best for last, this was it! 
How amazing would this set-up be for a dinner party?!
But with a property this beautiful, we couldn't share just one photo! 

An oversized lap pool nestled in between vineyards for morning swims!

That sky?! #nofilter

The venue is quite perfect for events, or you can simply visit for lunch.  They staff a gourmet chef for daily meal preparation and wine pairings!

The wine wasn't half bad either!
It was truly one of the most generous tastings of our whole week, with the winemaker pouring each tasting personally. We didn't want to leave!
And if all that wasn't enough, there is a fabulous boutique on the grounds containing custom upholstery using only luxury silk scarves.  It was so fab it deserves its own post. Stay tuned!
