Napa Valley and Rubicon Estate Winery

20 12 2008

California’s Napa Valley and the surrounding areas have become home to some of the finest wineries in the world. Here’s a few images from a tour of the Rubicon Estate Winery which was purchased by Francis Ford Coppola in the 1970’s. If Charlie don’t surf, maybe there’s time for a late afternoon visit to Rubicon and very, very, fine glass of wine! This is Americana! Cheers!
