The Welcome to Napa Valley signs, first dedicated by the Napa Valley Vintners in 1950, are receiving some much-needed repairs to ensure they'll be around to greet visitors for at least another 60 years....
Auction Napa Valley is four glorious days of incredible wine, food and gracious hospitality…how about adding a little "food for the brain" to your Auction experience? On Friday, June 1st, we invite you to start your day with your choice of two wine education sessions. See the descriptions below or view the video preview to learn more.
"How to taste a Barrel Sample"Andrea Robinson
Back by popular demand, this educational session has been updated for 2012 with a twist: taste five Napa Valley wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, all from the barrel, followed by a tasting of five similar finished wines. Some of Napa Valley's most well-known winemakers and wine educator and Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson will guide you through this perfect primer for the 100 extraordinary lots featured at this year's Barrel Tasting and Case Auction.
"Aroma Wheel of Fortune"9:15-10:45 am, Silverado Resort & Spa, Napa
