Each year, the NVWLA hosts two major events and a number of additional events.

Annual Tasting


The Annual Tasting has been a yearly event for over 50 years. Where once a half dozen Napa Valley wineries poured, we now expect more than ten times that many to join us among the grand oak trees of the Grove at Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa.

Every current member of NVWLA is invited to attend the Annual Tasting and there is no admission fee. The tasting is a benefit of membership.



Wine Seminar


 Each year, the NVWLA holds a Wine Seminar at the CIA-Greystone in St. Helena. A panel of wine industry experts speaks in depth about a specific topic, while the attendees sample wines that illustrate aspects of that topic.

This is a must-attend event for those with a keen interest in wine.

In addition to the two major events, the NVWLA also hosts events such as author discussions and book signings, often in conjunction with the St. Helena Public Library (where the NVWLA collection of books and periodicals is kept).
