Another week is nearly done, which means it’s time to turn our attention to making some weekend plans.

For those visiting the Napa Valley, be sure to check out the events below and be sure to tell them you heard about them on The Cork Board!

Saturday, September 24th

  • From 12pm – 4pm Cosentino Winery in Yountville will host its ‘Fall Into Flavor’ event with winemaker Mitch Cosentino. For $20 per person (free for wine club members) you’ll be able to enjoy wine flights, artisanal cheeses from Dean and Deluca, and strolls through the vineyard at 1pm and 3pm. Cosentino will be on hand to discuss how harvest is progressing and sign bottles. Call 707-921-2896 for more information
  • From 1pm – 4pm the Mount Veeder Appellation Wine Tasting will take place at the Hess Collection. For $50 per person, you’ll be able to taste small production gems from Mount Veeder wineries, many of which are not normally open to the public. In addition to the wine, there will be live music and food. Call 707-252-1017 for details

Sunday, September 25th

  • From 10am – 5pm Domaine Chandon will host its ‘Music on the Terrace’ featuring a live band to pair with the winery’s sparkling wines. No RSVP is necessary and there is no added fee for the live tunes (just pay for your tasting). Call 888-242-6366 for more information. UPDATE: Chandon has decided to move this event to October 2nd
  • From 11am – 2pm the Trefethen Family will host an old-fashioned country fair, dubbed the ‘Trefethen Country Faire,‘ to celebrate the 125 year anniversary of the Eshcol-Trefethen winery. The fair will be complete with a tractor parade, carnival games, gourmet food trucks, some of the valley’s winemakers in a dunk tank, and of course, wine. There is a $10 suggested donation and you can RSVP by calling 866-895-7696 for details

Cheers everyone!
