With so many options, I remember reading once, “I can enjoy food and wine everyday, with all of the offers out there.” I thought, “yup.” I also don’t usually advocate for events I haven’t attended (yet). This one, however, given the who, what, when, and where, I don’t have to attend to tell you about it. If you do attend, I’m quite sure it’s going to be fabulous. I’ve worked in Napa Valley, have clients – present and past – in Napa Valley, I know the heart and soul of it. It’s come into its own. This is why it’s world renown.
So, it’s that time of year again; i.e., time to indulge in the winemaking and culinary arts of St. Helena, with the Napa Valley epicenter for food and wine…
Who: 35 wineries pouring wines from Appellation St. Helena
