Karl Lawrence has Gone with the Wynns

In case you haven't heard of them, the Wynns are a newlywed couple in the middle of a two-year RV road trip across the country. They travel from state to state in search of anything and everything fantastic and broadcast it to the world via blogs, videos, tweets, and the like.

While these fantastic endeavors range from music festivals to ski resorts to coffee shops, the Wynns got in touch with Karl Lawrence and decided to come on over to the Valley. They parked their RV up on the Henry Brothers' Ranch.

We're sure their own chronicling of their adventure in wine country will be much more epic than our little cell phone pictures, but just to give you a taste, here's a few snapshots of their time with us in Saint Helena:

Here the famous couple, Jason and Nikki, get their first, or second, taste of Napa Valley.

Here's the bigger gang at the KL office. Left to right, back row: Doug Gallagher of SoƱador Winery, Jacob Wynn, Lorri and Mitch Hirsch, and Cara and Ken Arnold. Jason and Nikki are in front.

Note: Jacob Wynn was just visiting the Valley, but will study film at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington on a soccer scholarship, in the fall. The Hirschs and Arnolds are from Parkland, Florida and made it to the KL office via recomendation from Mike and Alison De Young.

Here the Wynns sample some barrels at Staglin with Ryan, the enologist, and our own Chris Pratt, the assistant winemaker.

Well, Wynns, to put it simply, we envy your epic journey. But we hope you had a good time with the Karl Lawrence crew, and can't wait to see where your RV takes you next.
