Cork Bits: ideas for your Napa Valley weekend

by Karen on September 17, 2009

Thursday is here again, which can only mean one thing. It’s time for our weekly round-up of local events and this is a special one.

Not only is this week special because the Wine Train is celebrating its 20th Anniversary Birthday, but also because this is the 100th edition of our Cork Bits. Hard to believe we’ve done this particular post for 100 weeks now…wow!

We appreciate all the feedback and keep on sending in those events…

Friday, September 18th

  • From 5pm – 7pm at Robert Mondavi Winery the weekly ‘Harvest Happenings’ will take place. For just $10 per person you’ll be able to sip a glass of wine paired with an appetizer from the winery chef out on the winery’s private courtyard. There will be music as well and no reservation is required. Call Jocelyn Hoar at 707-968-2151 for more information

Saturday, September 19th

  • Between 12pm – 4pm Spring Mountain Vineyard will host its annual ‘Fête Elivette’ open house. This year’s event will feature Elivettes of the past (you’ll be able to taste the 2000 – 2004 vintages in the caves with winemaker Jac Cole) and an Elivette of the present, including the first sampling of the 2005 Elivette vintage. Finally, you’ll be able to try an Elivette of the future -The 2007 Elivette, which will be offered on futures (30% off release price) for the day only. The event is $25 per person (free for wine club members) and you can ring Ted Davidson at 707-967-4190 for all the details

Until next week, cheers everyone!

    Chris Riccobono, a young guy that runs a wine review site (pardonthatvine.com), just did a very entertaining 5-min video review of the wine he picked for his wedding — from NAPA — of course. It was a bargain for a wedding wine ($50), and it was from Carbenet from Larkmead. Do you know it?

    You should check out his videos; very entertaining, and he's completely unstuffy…the anti-Gary Vaynerchuck.
