If you happen to be lucky enough not to be spending this final weekend before Christmas doing some last-minute shopping then you’ll likely be seeking some R&R.

If that’s the case, you’re in luck as we’ve got a couple events on tap over the next few days here in the Napa Valley that should do just the trick…
