Drink Napa Valley Wines This Holiday Season

October 28, 2020 /

Our success here at the Napa Truffle Festival has been built on the authentic Napa Valley experience and our winery partners are the cornerstone of that. The recent Glass Fire that devastated our valley has severely impacted the wine industry and now it is time to bolster up our local community the way we do best, by drinking local Napa Valley wines! 

Throughout the years, we’ve co-hosted opulent winery lunches full of truffles featuring the pours of each year’s wine partners. We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our guests on the quality of the experience that was offered during the weekend. We wanted to reintroduce those wineries to you (in no particular order) and encourage you to drink Napa Valley wines during the upcoming holiday season!
