Napa Packing List

Tomorrow my boyfriend Sam and I are heading to Napa Valley, CA.  I am so excited- as this will be my first time visiting wine country; however, I am a little nervous.  Nervous, you ask?  Yes, because this will be my first time meeting Sam's parents in person!  They live in Sydney, Australia, so we have skyped many times with them, but seeing them in person will be a first.  Luckily, if things go badly, plenty of wine will be on hand! :)


Here's my packing list- of course, my camera will be in tow so I can take beautiful pictures of the valley, and a notebook is a must so I can write down all the wines I love. Since this is our first time to Napa, we are pretty clueless regarding what to do and see.  We have done a bit of research, but to all you experienced travelers out there- please let me know your favorite sights and sips so we won't miss anything!  Wish me luck, and bon voyage!
