This photo I took 3 years back is being used on the Napa River page on Wikipedia.
Even though I’m not a professional photographer, a couple of my photos were used in a couple of publications recently:
- Openroad.tv is using my photo of the Napa River for their Napa River Adventures guide.
- Schmap put my picture of Mumm Winery on their Napa Valley map (Update (7/7/08): Now it works on iPhone too).
- My photo with Sergey Brin was used by The Park Record newspaper of Park City, Utah for a feature called 6 Degrees of Park City.
So last Friday, August 4th, I went to the Napa Valley for the first time. Napa, in case you didn’t know, is know for its incredible wine vineyards. I went to three different wineries: Mumm, Copia (though it’s not really winery; it’s described as a discovery center), and Ceja. It was a work related event with the ESL Program at Berkeley. I’m finally old enough to go (despite what my outer appearance would suggest), though I never particularly cared for wine too much (or anything grape-flavored that wasn’t actually a grape). I must say it felt like one of the more “grown-up” things I’ve done. Nevertheless I had a lot of fun on this trip.
Mumm is a neat place, because it is one of the few wine tours that actually shows you how they make wine (at least that’s what the tour guide said).
