Artesa Winery Napa

Following our di Rosa Preserve visit we ventured out to Artesa Winery which is built on top of a hill or more accurately into the top of a hill. Like an ancient pyramid it hidden by greenery that covers its slanted walls. As you walk up to the entrance there is a giant pond and fountain (not very green). The glass artwork of Artist in Residence Gordon Huether is everywhere. In the foreground of this photo is a torpedo-like object covered with bits of colorful glass.

Our friends Thelma and Walter are wine club members which gave us privileged access to their Library wines. By far our favorite is the 2006 Chardonnay Carneros. It was like eating a slice of cake.
