Inn at Occidental
Having just returned from a welcome retreat to Wine Country, I can tell you – now’s the perfect time to go get lost on the West Coast! We’re entering a GORGEOUS time of year for out there…the air cool and crisp, the scenery exploding with indescribable color. The time of year growers and wine makers live for!

On my recent trip to Napa, I just had to re-visit the Inn at Occidental. This is one of my favorite Bed & Breakfast spots I think I’ve ever come across! The grounds are as pretty as you’d expect to find in wine country. This dish, like their entire menu, is fabulous!

The recipe for Backstreet Cafe’s incredible Short Rib Hash is right here. I paired […]
We recently spent a few days in heaven – a little slice of heaven in Sonoma called Occidental. It’s an incredibly beautiful area – only about 8 miles from the ocean and nestled in the rolling wine country hills. We stayed in a delightful B&B called the Inn at Occidental
