A Retirement Plan

This was shot inside the Sales Room at Prager Winery in Napa, California. Prager makes the most exquisite Ports. When we are in the neighbourhood, we always stop for a tasting and the eventual buy !  You may recall a previous post taken of their window – the Owner said it was the best picture ever taken of his Spider Web Window…how flattering!

The show room is covered with accolades from visitors, prize ribbons from competitions, and dollars bills with personal notes from the admiring Public!

For over thirty years, the Prager family has been producing some of the best port wine we’ve ever tasted . The house is located on the main drag in the heart of California’s “wine country,” but you may have trouble finding it in the midst of so many giant tourist traps. The grounds are picturesque but unassuming – this place is small and proud of it. Others have called it a hipster winery or a hippie winery, but I think those monikers are fine. It’s the antithesis of most places in the area, so call it what you will.

The “tasting room” is actually a house (or barn?); you enter through a narrow hallway and proceed into a small kitchen and living area.
The server on duty works at the kitchen sink and counter (cute). However, the tasting room is especially famous for its walls – they’re covered in money. Real greenbacks. Usually autographed by patrons and visitors of the winery. It’s one of the most unique rooms we’ve ever seen… it has to be seen to be believed!

  1. Great pictures!

    Check out this restaurant in my home town of Winter Park, CO – There are around $20,000 of dollar bills on the ceiling and walls…
