Friday is here and we’re looking forward to enjoying some amazing local vino this weekend. We’ve got quite the stockpile that we need to start getting through–a rough life we know.
Read on for details on upcoming events, special offers and news from the Napa Valley.
Baldacci Family Vineyards to kick-off ‘Sunset with the IV Sons’
The folks over at Baldacci Family Vineyards have announced a weekly event for the Summer that sounds like something we’ll be checking out. Every Thursday from 7pm – 8:30pm Baldacci will offer pairings of three of its Stags Leap Cabernets (IV Sons) with a platter of artisinal cheese for $20 per person. From there you’re welcome to hang out on the patio and soak up the amazing views along Silverado Trail and across the valley to the West. For more info, call 707-944-9261.
Mumm Napa served at the White House this week
Earlier this week President Barack Obama welcomed Felipe Calderon, president of Mexico, to the White House for a state dinner. The menu, which was put together by Top Chef Masters winner Rick Bayless, included wine pairings–one of which was Mumm Napa’s ‘Carlos Santana’ Brut cuvee. Check out the interesting pairing for it here. If you’re feeling Presidential, the wine is sold through the winery tasting room, and a portion of the sales go to Carlos Santana’s Milagro Foundation.
Memorial Day Weekend Special at Meadowood Napa Valley
