    Congrats!

    did you have reservations at Opus? We had some friends go there that didn't know you needed them (at least, you did then). they rang the buzzer at the gate and said "this is ____ we're here for our tour". when they said they didn't have them on the list, they raised a stink and said that they were corporate wine buyers, and that their reservation was made months ago.

    they ended up having someone from the Mondavi family show them around :rofl:

    wow. Dude, you know how to do things right. The second pic is stunning. And her engagement ring is very classy. Massive respect.

    We had an appointment for a tasting, but when we got there they asked if we wanted a tour since the whole group for the next private tour had canceled. Ended up getting a private tour of the whole facility :cool:

    yeah, I'm just about to do some ring shopping myself. Probably similar to yours too.

    Good luck :bigthumb: Talking to her father was more nervewracking than asking her :o

    Check out the pricescope.com forums. Lots of good information and will help you to make an informed decision.

    1 and 2 are the 85L. The rest are the 35L.

    We were going to go there but decided to go to a new restaurant right next to our B&B instead. When we were tasting at Chandon I checked out the restaurant and it looked really nice.

    A picture of the actual engagement?

    I'd just enjoy it and take a picture afterwards.

    I like 5. The lighting isn't the greatest, but its cool none the less.

    She looks like she was a trip to work with.
