On the occasion of the Napa Valley Wine Library Association’s 50th Anniversary we invite you to let us show off for you.
Our signature event, the Napa Valley Wine Library’s Annual Tasting, expands this August 19th to include all our Napa Valley wineries wanting to feature their Vintner’s Choice: the wines they really want to show off to you. Over 100 wineries, from founding members to the brand new and unexplored, will pour favorites and experiments. Come enjoy it all. Your membership is your admission ticket.
More important than the wine education and a beautiful afternoon in the Grove at Silverado Resort, however, is the support your ticket gives to the collections and operations of the Napa Valley Wine Library. Its special collections of books on wine and original materials on the history of the wine industry throughout the world, in California, and particularly in Napa Valley, and available for all to use at the St. Helena Public Library, were organized by interested St. Helenans in 1963. Donations from the libraries of the University of California at Berkeley and Davis, and by interested citizens, and works purchased by the Napa Valley Wine Library itself have created a unique collection of research and educational materials enhanced by the Library’s evolving programs on Wine Appreciation, Appellation Education and Winemakers Seminars. Your membership ticket helps support all of this.
So, come to the 50th Anniversary of the Annual Napa Valley Wine Library Tasting, bring friends to introduce to us, and let us show off for you. See you there!
