Scenes from the Chiarello Family Vineyards Harvest Party

Earlier this evening we were among the lucky few who attended the Chiarello Family Vineyards harvest party in Yountville. Held at the historic Barrel Room at The V Marketplace, the event is put on by the Chiarello family and is designed to be a ‘thank you’ to wine club members and the extended community that are touched by Chiarello Family Vineyards, NapaStyle and the soon-to-be opened Bottega.

In addition to barrel tastings of several of the family wines, the highlight was certainly the four-course meal (more to come in future postings) that was very loosely based around the Bottega menu. As we gather our thoughts on the evening, here are a few photos to provide a glimpse into what we saw:
