It’s that time of the week again–here’s a rundown of some of the events taking place in the Napa Valley this weekend.

As you can imagine, numerous wineries will be hosting Valentine’s Day themed events, so get ready for lots of chocolate and wine.

If you’re planning a visit, don’t forget to check out our Napa Valley Valentine’s Day itinerary as well. Enjoy!

Friday, February 12th – Sunday, February 14th

  • Our friends over at St. Supéry Vineyards & Winery in Rutherford will host a series of one-hour chocolate and wine pairing events that should be a lot of fun. For $40 per person ($30 per wine club member), you’ll be treated to a special cellar tour followed by a sit-down tasting of the winery’s Napa Valley estate wines paired with local handmade chocolates from Anette’s Chocolates. On Friday there’s one event scheduled for 3:30pm. On Saturday and Sunday there will be opportunities at 11am, 1pm and 3:30pm. Find more details here. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 866-963-4534

Saturday, February 13th

  • From 3pm – 6pm at Bayleaf Restaurant in Napa the ‘Top 100 Cabs of the Napa Valley‘ event will take place. For $95 per person in advance ($135 per person at the door), you’ll be able to (attempt to) taste all 100 of the Top Napa Valley Cabs (as decided by a panel of judges), mingle and interact with the winemakers, enjoy passed hors d’ouevres and take home a free Rabbit Aerating pourer (per couple). Call 818-224-8603 for more details

Saturday, February 13th and Sunday, February 14th

  • The crew at Provenance Vineyards is going bit contrarian by celebrating Mardi Gras this weekend from 12pm – 4pm. For $10 per person, you’ll be able to enjoy some Cajun “nibbles”, a bit of King’s Cake and the wines of Provenance Vineyards of course. Call 707-968-3633 for more information
