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 beneath the oaks in the Grove at Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa.

Each year, wineries are invited to pour wines of a certain variety, vintage or expression. Wineries registered to pour at the event may pay the associated table fee at the online payment page.

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.
