The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Kathy Wakile has ditched one coast for another: She's on vacation in California with husband Richard, and they're hitting tons of dreamy high points around the northern portions of the state — especially wine country!
Her trip began at the world-class coastal destination of Big Sur.
Next, her crew the beach at Carmel, where they soaked up sunshine and an idyllic landscape Kathy called "magical."
Next, she moved further inland and north up the state to wine country. First stop? Sonoma, where a wooded vineyard view showed just how picturesque and serene the landscape in the region can be.
Next, it was off to nearby Calistoga, where they made a stop at Castello di Amorosa — an actual castle and winery — where, naturally, Kathy declared it "wine o'clock!"
She shared a little wine humor with her Instagram fans.
They hit up Michael Chiarello's Bottega Ristorante in Yountville, where Kathy enjoyed "fine wine, fantastic food, & forever friends!"
Over in San Francisco's Castro district, they met up with Greggy Bennett for hugs and a "sweet surprise."
Back in Napa, there was more wine, naturally — and things were just "glorious" at Opus One vineyards.
San Francisco is not known for its sunshine, but Kathy found it on the coast nevertheless — and said it felt so good to have the sun shining on her.
Kathy and Richard also became the latest celebrities to benefit from a sweet lodging hookup from Airbnb. Kathy thanked the brand in her Instagram post, and shared that Richard said it felt just like a Tuscan villa.
Aaaaah, California dreamin' indeed.
