AlexisSwansonNapaWhat better way to escape the throws of everyday life than to slip off with your best girlfriends to sip wine in Napa Valley? I recently had the opportunity to do just that when I attended the Wine Sisterhood’s First Annual Gathering. During my three-day break from reality and running our small group of gals visited Swanson Vineyards and experienced tastings in their playfully whimsical Swanson Sip Shoppe and their more sophisticated Swanson Salon. Both venues had a distinctly different and alluring charm about them. I had the opportunity to chat with the Creative Director of Swanson Vineyards Alexis Swanson Traina (yes, she’s a Swanson, her father founded the company) who shares her insight on traveling and tasting in Napa.

Until next time, I’m off and running …
