This is the final post about my visit to the Napa Valley. I saved the best for last. This watercolor sketch is of the Sterling Winery. Their cabernet sauvignon was my husband’s absolute favorite. When I saw the winery I had to visit. It sits on the top of a hill and you take a 300 foot aerial tram ride to reach the winery…beautiful views of the valley. This winery is at the northern eand of the valley and you have moved past the very dry, sun bleached hills of the south end of Napa. The winery is designed to look like a small village in Greece. Very special, very picturesque.
I liked the overlapping abstract shapes and the clean, bright colors. The large tarnished bell that sits in the arch was brought from Greece.
