A short month means the final weekend of February is nearly here. The hillsides are green and the trees and flowers are starting to show signs of life in these parts.

Here are three events taking place this weekend (and a special one taking place tonight) that should be worth a look.

Thursday, February 25th

  • From 5pm – 8pm downtown Napa’s Back Room Wines will host a Diamond Mountain Cab Tasting. The event, which costs $10 per person, will feature three Diamond Mountain Estate wineries that only make Cabernet: Dyer Vineyards, Mueller Family Vineyards and Diamond Terrace. For the tasting fee you’ll be able to taste (duh) as well as visit with the winery owners. No reservations are necessary, but you can call 707-226-1378 for more information

Friday, February 26th

  • From 5pm – 7pm at I. Wolk Gallery in St. Helena and from 6:30pm – 8pm at Ma(i)sonry in Yountville there will be art, wine and hors d’oeuvres receptions taking place to celebrate the fact that Ma(i)sonry and I. Wolk Gallery are teaming up. You’ll also be able to enjoy a collaborative artist reception featuring works by Giuseppe Palumbo, Melissa Chandon, Bret Price and Matt Rogers. You can RSVP online or by calling 707-963-8800

Saturday, February 27th

  • From 9:30am – 4pm at the Chateau Montelena tasting room in Calistoga you’re invited to celebrate the new Calistoga AVA, which officially went into effect on January 7th of this year. For the $20 tasting fee you’ll be able to taste the winery’s current releases and for an additional $5 you’ll be able to try (and purchase) the limited supply 1991 and 1992 Calistoga Cuvee. No appointment is necessary and you can ring 707-942-5105 for more information
