14 May 11

oils & salts
We rented bikes in Yountville and went on a self-guided tour around wine country. I think we went to about 6 or 7 different ones, and our backpacks got heavier and heavier... though I must say, after visiting the Okanagan wineries I was not prepared for such expensive tastings! Some places went up as high as $30, and almost nowhere were the fees waived with purchase.
Pictured above is a place called the St. Helena Olive Oil Company, and it was full of wonderful culinary things like truffle salt and tapenade. After returning our bikes and changing clothes and things, we had dinner at a fantastic Italian restaurant which resides in an old bank building.
