I did a terrible job taking pictures early in the trip.
We stopped in the city for lunch and then on our way up to Calistoga, we stopped in Berkley to check out the campus. I've been to some hippie campuses before (Boulder, Burlington, VT), but this one takes the cake. We walked around the area, took in views of the bay and marveled at the homes in the area.
Our first two days were spent in Calistoga, at Eurospa. Cozy and cute, Eurospa has a covered (and heated) open patio where they serve breakfast and cookies in the afternoon. We used it as our home base for snacking, wine drinking and planning.

In Calistoga we went full relaxation at Golden Haven Spa with mud baths, massages, facials and a dip in the mineral pool. We'd planned to do a biking winery tour, but it didn't work out so we went to Summers Winery (patio picture is from there) and a castle winery called Castello di Amorosa. Not my favorite wines, but a fun experience.
