What is the importance of a great coffee table book? Part home decor, part artifact that says a little something about your taste, a coffee table book has become an integral part of interior design in the past few years. That said, we're excited to be part of the new coffee table book, Napa Valley Entertaining. In Napa Valley, eating, drinking and entertaining with friends and familia is a feast for all senses and seasons. This book is an insider's guide to entertaining with a bit of wine country flair by highlighting a variety of dishes, décor and diversity that make Napa such a special place to call my hometown.  

Go behind the scenes and experience a meal with dozens of Napa Valley's most preeminent hosts and wineries through this gorgeous collection of photography, recipes and stories by Blakesley Chappellet and Briana Marie. Our colorful and festive spread will have your mouth watering and excited to throw your next fiesta!

P.S. Books are available for purchase HERE and will soon be available at our Ceja wine tasting rooms. Salud!

Highlights of our Ceja Vineyards wine cruise to Alaska aboard Celebrity Solstice. Ports included: Ketchikan, Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau, Skagway & Victoria B.C. 7 days of delicious food, wine, adventures and unforgettable memories with 84 of our fabulous wine club members and familia! Can you beat that?

  • Beauty + Wildlife - I had high expectations of beautiful landscapes and scenery but was absolutely blown away! I’ve also never seen so many Bald Eagles and whales in my life. 
  • Food + Wine - If you enjoy fresh seafood like crab, salmon and halibut there’s no better place than Alaska! Aboard the Celebrity Solstice we hosted 7 private Ceja wine and food focused events. Top events included: A 4 course luncheon paired with our vino, a cooking demonstration paired with Ceja wine (we made chilaquiles paired with our Pinot Noir), and a Salsa dance and wine drinking party! This cruise is meant for foodies and winos who love nature's paradise. 
  • Company You keep - We went with 84 of our awesome wine club members and it made the experience 10 times better! It was a unique and fun bonding experience who are forever linked to our familia as lifelong friends. 
  • Excursions - When in port you MUST take advantage of each destination in Alaska. Top excursions included: A Bald Eagle wilderness boat ride and crab feast (Ketchikan). Cruising through Glacier Bay. Get your cameras ready! (Tracy Arm Ford). Canoe trip to Mendenhall Glacier + waterfall (Juneau). Taking a train ride through the White Pass and Yukon Route then biking down the mountain. Scary but so fun! (Skagway). Lastly, walking through the magical Butchart Gardens at dusk (Victoria, BC).

Sedona and The Grand Canyon in 72 Hours

Hiking Cathedral Rock Trail

Hiking Cathedral Rock Trail

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Sedona and The Grand Canyon for the very first time. It was spectacular. It was even more special because I went with my mom. We enjoyed and indulged in 72 hours of non-stop adventure, spa treatments, hiking, relaxation, dining and drinking wine through the desert lands of Arizona. It was the perfect girls trip!

You can't beat these views or natural desert beauty.

If you are so fortunate, I hope everyone experiences a mother/daughter trip. It was so special sharing this adventure with her. x

Diane Von Furstenberg Dress & Steve Madden Heels

Diane Von Furstenberg Dress & Steve Madden Heels

As 2016 comes to a close I find myself thinking of personal growth challenges, failures and successes I've experienced and overcome. I feel blessed with the life I've built (so far) and am eternally grateful to the people that have encouraged and supported my passions and projects throughout the way. Now that I'm in my thirties, I can look back with pride to see how much I’ve grown and developed in a decade. But, if I were to have a tête-à-tête with my 20 year old self, here’s what I’d tell her: 

1. Love fearlessly, passionately and with no regrets.
2. Never ever stop personal growth, in every aspect of life.
3. Investing in (any type) of a higher education is the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself. 
4. Surround yourself with 3 types of people: the creative, the inspired, the grateful. 
5. Life is pretty damn unpredictable. Embracing change, even when you don't agree will only broaden your horizons.
6. You will make many many many mistakes. Learn from them, don't repeat them and grow.
7. Confidence and knowledge is power. Be authentic and stay humble.
8. Never stop traveling the world and experiencing new cultures and places. Life experiences are more valuable than material possessions.
9. Nurture every relationship in life: family, friends, career, colleagues.
10. Hangovers suck (especially in your 30s). Drink more water, drink more water, drink more water.
11. And above all, make every moment count. Be present. You are the author of your own story.... so make it shine.
