How we spent our weekend: fundraising at Flora Springs Winery

This past weekend, which was a hot and muggy one here in the Napa valley, we spent some time up at Flora Springs Winery. We were attending a truly Napa Valley event–a fundraiser for our little guy’s ‘school’ as we call it (in reality, it’s a daycare)–which was hosted by Flora Springs out on West Zinfandel Ln. in St. Helena.

The winery is gorgeous, slightly elevated on the western hillside with amazing views across to the east. We’re happy to report we left the silent auction with a magnum of 2004 Merryvale Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon from Beckstoffer Vineyards and a cookbook and cooking class from Cakebread Cellars (which will be redeemed in December).

All in all, a great end to the weekend. Here are a few photos we took while on-site:

Coincidentally, our friends over at Appellation America have just published a great write-up on Flora Springs, including a look at the winery’s history and what lies ahead. Check it out here.
