I'm learning red wine always makes me bleed worse.
But I don't usually have to deal with that until the next day...so I might drink what I wanted in Napa!
And know the next day may be a little rough.
Are you going from place to place in Napa? That's what worries me when I do that. Don't pass by a bathroom! And once the little bus we rented broke down and the bathroom where we pulled over was out of service...and I was hosting a group of politicians...I was privately in a panic, but survived.
Try to "taste" in moderation, especially since you don't want to get worse now.
And an immodium might be a good idea, for the day.
