Free fun on Saturday in Napa Valley's Yountville
Step into gourmet Heaven today—Saturday— in Yountville (in the heart of the Napa Valley). The Taste of Yountville features 15 area restaurants (several bearing Michelin stars), 20 local wineries and an array of mustard and olive oil producers on hand for tastings.
The event is free, from 11- 5 PM and includes live entertainment and an arts and crafts show; but you do need tasting tickets (available on site for $1 each) to sample the goodies. Wines from the Yountville appellation may include Andretti Winery, Bell Wine Cellars, Domaine Chandon, Hill Family Estate, Jessup Cellars, St. Supéry, and others.
I’ll be there, foraging with a couple of foodie friends. And I will write a wrap-up next week, but don't miss the event waiting for my story–make a daytrip today!
