Napa Valley Vlog: Charles Krug Winery

The power of social media is getting on Twitter one day, tweeting my little heart out when all of a sudden I get an inboxed message! Sonoma Wine Guy and I chat it up and I get invited to Charles Krug Winery. The oldest running winery in Napa. I’m delighted. I say yes and that I’ll be there soon. Here’s a look at what happened next!
