In the middle of the summer in San Francisco, when the fog blankets the city in thick cold mist and wind, it’s important to have a stable of destinations to escape to.

Up in the Spring Mountain District of St. Helena is a gorgeous winery called Barnett Vineyards. We recently had the privilege of spending a weekend up there. The grounds are fantastic. And their Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet is legendary among wine people.

The drive up to the estate is gorgeous. Winding roads with tree canopy coverage gives the impression you are somewhere very far from San Francisco despite the short 90 minute drive.
