“I'm a cyclist and I love the scenery in the Napa Valley,” says Emilio Alvarez, mill master at Round Pond Estate. “If I'm feeling a little tired, I’ll just ride from Rutherford to Napa for a cup of coffee. But if I have the time and am feeling good, I love to ride on the hills, such as Mt. Veeder or Cavedale, which is between Napa and Sonoma. Another of my favorites is Highway 128 in Rutherford, toward Capell Valley and then descending down Mt. George in to Napa; I like the smooth pavement, the climbs, and rolling hills.”
