I had the unique privilege of touring Dominus winery by Herzog & de Meuron yesterday.  They’re notorious for not allowing tours or tastings, but once a month to do allow a small architectural tour and I was lucky enough to tag along with a group.  The builidng is Herzog & de Meuron’s first in the U.S. and for those of you non-architecture geeks, they’re the same architects that designed the De Young Museum in San Francisco and most recently the Bird’s Nest stadium for the Olympics in Beijing. 
 
Fall has come to Napa and the colors were amazing. Enjoy!
