This Weekend: Taste of Yountville

on March 14, 2014

Just a few miles south of us on Highway 29 is the small town of Yountville. Filled with world class restaurants, casual eateries and cafes, boutique hotels and bed-and-breakfasts, the place makes us locals wish we were on vacation. We have the pleasure of working with several incredible Yountville restaurants, and our State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is grown right outside town.

If you are in Napa Valley this weekend be sure to get to Taste of Yountville—an annual event that draws hundreds to this food, wine and art-centered celebration. The event begins this afternoon with an art show reception and the main event is on Saturday. To learn more, visit the Taste of Yountville website.
