We’ve got a couple fun and interesting events for you this week. Given the current financial situation in this country you’ll be happy to know that both events are free of charge!

Friday, October 3rd

  • Ever wonder if chocolate and Cabernet Sauvignon are truly a match made in heaven? Well, tomorrow night from 4pm – 6pm at the Solage Resort in Calistoga you can join Suzanne Phifer Pavitt, the owner of Date Night (a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon) as she pours tastes of the 2005 vintage at The Sol Bar at Solage. You’ll also be able to sample three chocolates from New York-based artisanal producer Veré (Salty Caramels, Vanilla Bean Chocolate, Chocolate-Almond Clusters) to see how they pair with the wine. The event is complimentary and open to the public.

Sunday, October 5th

  • The 31st Annual Yountville Days Parade and Festival is scheduled to take place between 11am – 5pm in downtown Yountville. Attendees are invited to enjoy the festival which will include food, beer, wine, and other entertainment. There is no charge for the event and more information can be obtained by calling 707-944-0904
