7x7's Guide to Napa Valley Wine

Swanson Vineyards

The valley’s 400-plus wineries and bustling tasting rooms can make Napa a daunting conquest. On your next trip, keep it simple with 10 of our favorite spots, from the nationally renowned to the rare hidden gem.

Visit Church Street Flowers' Brand New Location at 950 Battery Street!

If you're ever in need of a pick-me-up, sometimes nothing does it better than a bright bouquet of fresh flowers. The energy that flowers bring to your desk, your dinner table or your nightstand (and thus, your life) is unmatched by a cocktail, a batch of cookies, or new clothes–although those are awesome too. When we need a few stems, we head to Church Street Flowers for their expert hand in arranging (they've been doing it for over 25 years!) and gorgeous, ever-changing selection of flora.

Get Glitzy at the Napa Valley Film Festival's Gala, November 8

Napa Valley Film Festival Gala

The Napa Valley Film Festival, one of the region's most buzzed-about happenings, is just a breath away....and indeed now that the stressful election season is drawing to a close, a trip up to Wine Country sounds like just what the doctor ordered.

A Once-in-a-Lifetime Wedding in the Maritime Room at the Argonaut Hotel

Gabrielle Medina and Sophana Tann's story started when they were little kids. The Medina family moved into the Tanns' building, and the two families became next-door neighbors. As a child, Sophana played with the Medina boys, and one day they invited Sophana into their house–that's when Gabrielle and he first met.

Initially, they were just friendly neighbors, but as time passed, Sophana started to develop true feelings for Gabrielle. He couldn't tell at the time if she felt the same way, but everyone joked that they would be together when they got older.

The Audacity of Layer Cake Wines

Layer Cake WInes

In another tasteless election year full of half-truths, back room compromises, and diluted promises, wouldn't it be great to sit down and enjoy something pure and righteous? While many would argue it's akin to a religious intervention, we're talking about enjoying a dose of one hundred percent pure joy via a bottle or two of Layer Cake Wines.
