High on the hill but in the woods accented with amazing flowers, Rombauer's gardens are a favorite picnic place. You are sitting on top of the wine caves tunneled into the mountain, looking out over the Napa Valley back toward St. Helena. We buy a bottle or two of the chardonney or other great wines and enjoy our picnic lunch in the tables tucked in the trees or down at the opening of the wine caves that resembles a hobbit's door. The tasting room workers are a hoot; ask about the couple that they watched get extremely amorous in the rosemary bushes via the security cameras. We always plan one picnic lunch at Rombauer each stay. The old dog there is hilarious as well; the lab will come by and beg a piece of ice . . . if you don't go too far. He likes to stay on top of the hill. The caves are very interesting; we first visited when they were tunneling into the hills some 19 years ago. Wow; it has gotten better and better and the wine has always been excellent. The tasting room is so-so in terms of ambiance, but the grounds are wonderful.
