On Friday, March 9th from 6pm – 9pm, downtown Napa’s Stave Wine Lounge will be hosting a party to celebrate its first anniversary. For those who’ve never stopped in, Stave (as far as we know) is the valley’s only high-tech wine lounge.
Here’s how it works, you come in, purchase a card with whatever dollar amount you’d like and then head over to the wine machine. Stave offers 32 small producer wines, each costing a slightly different amount for a single taste. When you find one you like, put your glass underneath the pouring spout, swipe your card and the vino flows. It’s that simple. If you’ve ever visited VinoVenue in San Francisco, it’s the very same concept.
Stave’s selection of wines changes quite often, but if you’re into reds (and it’s available) we highly recommend giving the 2002 Palmaz Vineyards “Gaston” Cabernet a try (yes, we do have a bottle in our personal wine cellar).
If you stop by on the 9th for the party, you’ll be treated to free samples of Stave’s new ‘Wine Bites’ menu, which includes spiced nuts, cheeses, mixed olives and even some caviar. Yum!
