Amanda says:
This is the Napa Valley’s most famous landmark – The Grape Crusher. 

Located at the intersection of Hwys 128 & 29. I just wish we would have known that there was a cow dressed like Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch just down the road but we didn’t find out about that until after we got home 🙁

I love him! I must admit that I would have been nuts for the Norma Jean cow too!

According to the Mirage Resort & Spa website: The bronze “Grapecrusher” statue was created by sculpture Gino Miles and was erected in 1987.  The statue is dedicated to the workers who labor in the vineyards.
