Here we are, another Thursday and another rapidly approaching weekend.

It’s gonna be a busy one here in the Napa Valley with the 32nd Annual Napa Valley Marathon taking place on Sunday, March 7th (race time is 7am).

Here are a couple events that should make the weekend even more enjoyable.

Saturday, March 6th

  • From 11am – 2pm Alpha Omega in Rutherford will host a magnum party. For $20 per person (free for wine club members), you’ll be able to sample Alpha Omega wines straight from a magnum while pairing them with “small bites” created by the winery’s Executive Chef Natalie Niksa. Call 707-302-1134 for all the details

Saturday, March 6th and Sunday, March 7th

  • From 1pm – 5pm both days, the Mustard, Mud & Music festival will bring live jazz to a variety of downtown Calistoga venues. For $20 per person single day ($35 per person for a weekend pass) you’ll be able to stroll through galleries and shops and dine at local pubs and restaurants while soaking up the wonderful sounds of numerous musicians. Among the wineries that will be pouring are Calistoga Cellars, Envy Wines, Twomey Cellars, Vincent Arroyo and many more. Call 707-942-6333 for more information

Happy Weekend!
