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.

This year’s tasting is as follows:

54th Annual Tasting: “A Sense of Place: Honoring Napa Valley Terroir”

Sunday, August 14, 2016
5 pm to 7 pm
The Grove at Silverado Resort & Spa, Napa

53rd AnnualThis year, wineries are being invited to pour wines they feel keenly reflect a sense of place, a certain terroir. Watch for single, designated vineyards including Estate, and varieties already associated or coming to be associated with particular appellations. 70 to 80 wineries are expected to pour, with a great number of winemakers and winery principals on hand, happy to do the honors of pouring. Participating wineries must be licensed in Napa Valley and pour wines from Napa County appellations (including the two shared appellations of Los Carneros and Wild Horse Valley). The list of wineries and their wines will start posting in June.

For those planning to attend the event, a certain number of overnight accommodations are available at a special rate on a first come, first served basis at Silverado Resort & Spa. Go to and enter Promo Code SPP.
