Bounty Hunter Wine Bar & Smokin’ BBQ, Napa Valley

Kids, don’t try this at home.

One fine morning at the Mission, my friend and I picked up our rental at Enterprise and drove all the way to Napa. I felt giddy and excited, driving to Napa for the first time. I might not be in time for Bottlerock to see Dan Reynolds on stage, but at least I can get my Domaine Chandon and Robert Mondavi on this momentous day.

I had the best time at Domaine Chandon. Rosé haters may hate me all they want, but there’s no shame in drinking pink wine. Six wine glasses later — My friend surreptitiously pursed her lips in disapproval at me but carry on.. So, six glasses of wine later at Domaine Chandon, my friend had to drive me to Castello di Amorosa where good old Bill served me 10 glasses of wine. After the third drink, my friend had to call it a day and watched me, the last woman standing at the tasting counter, while the Mexicans laughed and danced their heart out to tipsiness.

The Damage

Castello di Amorosa 1

All on an empty stomach.

I was a little buzzed. Just a little, as I still had half a mind to suggest my friend to drive us to downtown Napa, where the Bounty Hunter ribs mightily stood. Yes, in all matters of ideas, wine makes us incredibly brilliant.

And what a brilliant choice it was! My wine sommelier at Domaine Chandon was terrific and suggested Bounty Hunter Ribs as well, an aha! moment at that.

Smokin’ Saint Louis Cut Ribs – $12.50 (half rack), $25.00 (full rack)

And that is the award-winning pork ribs from the wine country.

I managed to this because my body has a weird effect when it comes to alcohol. What coffee does for you, the wine does for me. So after this meal, I was incredibly wired. My friend was so tired from the back-and-forth driving so she was half-awake to allow me to sneak outside to grab Tartine coffee.

To the children of 2016, don’t follow my example.
