WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

A LANGUID WEEKEND IN NAPA

James Andrew, Napa

A friend of Scott McBee’s was celebrating a birthday milestone so a villa in Napa was arranged and a collection of friends gathered together to mark the occasion!

Neither McBee nor I had ever been to Napa, so we were rather excited to explore. Needless to say there is a good reason that Napa has become a destination of choice – it really is rather stunning with its rolling green hills and rows and rows of glorious grape vines. The scent of roses, magnolias, and sage, permeates idyllic fields and little towns, and there are the most wonderful restaurants serving up California wine-country cuisine. And of course there are endless vineyards and wine tastings.

All of this being said, having escaped summer in the city, McBee and I opted to take it easy, and spent most of our time luxuriating poolside, catching up on reading, and enjoying the company of friends. Early cocktail hour was par for the course, with Bloody Marys or Margaritas followed by dinner where we enjoyed the best of California wines.

It all went by too quickly, but Mcbee and I are looking forward to visiting again, and discovering more of Napa.

    James,

    It would be great fun for you and Scott next time out to meet Jarrett Hedborg- he is a designer in Los Angeles with a “major” celebrity clientele-

    I adored these images as they remind me of my ancestral home near Caserta- !
