Swanson Vineyards‘ new Sip Shoppe is at the top of my list for our next Napa trip. First, we’ll check out the red and white stripey shoppe + its wares (Andy Spade is involved, so you know it’s going to be good, and I’m dying to see the stationery that singer Vanessa Carlton has designed exclusively for the shoppe). Then, we’ll relax in the courtyard with a glass of wine. A most satisfying way to spend an afternoon.
For more Napa info, don’t miss the Swanson blog, Alexis’ Napa, written by Alexis Swanson Traina. It’s full of insider tips for the region as well as more about Swanson Vineyards (not to mention , illustrated by Jean-Philippe Delhomme).
