Afternoons in the Vineyard
The 12th annual Afternoon in the Vineyards will take place on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 2:00 - 4:30 pm.
The community is invited to meet growers and winery owners in the vineyards as vines begin to bud out, signaling the beginning of the growing season and the vintage to be. These informal gatherings allow neighbors to meet one another and learn about the grape growing process, innovative farming techniques, and the agricultural strategies that produce Napa Valley wines of exceptional character. Residents will also learn more about the Napa Valley's internationally recognized commitment to environmental stewardship through programs such as Napa Green Certified Land.
Walk the vineyard rows, taste the wines and see for yourself what makes Napa Valley the premier winegrowing region. The event is a causal (wear your boots) open house (no RSVPs necessary), and complimentary for all Napa County residents and their guests. Visit any or several of the locations.
