Annual Harvest Party
September 10, 2016
Celebrate the abundance of Harvest with the Corley family at an Italian inspired Gala…Napa-style! The fun begins on the lawn with live music and a glass of Monticello Vineyards wine. You will then feast on an array of delectable food stations, from fresh pulled Mozzarella to hand-made pasta dishes made-to-order. These culinary creations will be paired to perfection with their newly released Corley State Lane Cabernet Sauvignon and Monticello Vineyards Estate Grown Merlot along with a selection of other much loved wines.
When you visit this winery you’ll notice their main building looks just like Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Virginia and is in fact a 1/3 size replica of Monticello. The Corley Family produce two types of wines; their Monticello Vineyards label which are food friendly wines, as well as the Corley label which includes their reserve and higher end wines. They also make a Brut sparkling wine from a Pinot Noir / Chardonnay blend, a French style, with low acidity http://www.corleyfamilynapavalley.com/Wines.

Top of the World Harvest Party
September 24, 2016
You’re invited by Yannick and Susan Rousseau, proprietors of Y. Rousseau Wines, to the top of Mount Veeder in Napa Valley to celebrate the 2016 harvest and the best of life’s bounty.
Take a walk in the vineyard, enjoy magnificent views, great food and expressive wines from Y. Rousseau. Enjoy chilled Old-Vine Colombard with oysters. Sip award-winning Tannat, Merlot, and Cabernet and find your favorite to pair with brisket and baby back ribs. All while listening to the soulful tunes of up-and-coming singer-songwriter star, Hannah Jane Kile.
Mount Veeder, is a one-of-a-kind appellation with wine production severely limited by nature. West of Napa and Yountville, Mount Veeder has been producing richly intense, age-worthy wines since the 1860s. The wines from Mount Veeder – the mountain by the bay – reflect the independent spirit of its mountain growers and vintners, borne of rugged conditions that demand hand craftsmanship at the highest level.
