What We Do
Provide great opportunities to taste and learn about wine
Each August, our annual winetasting offers a superb selection of wines from Napa Valley wineries; our annual wine seminar is an excellent opportunity to learn the why and how our local winemakers make the wines they do; additional wine appreciation programs take place throughout the year. Please go to Events for more information and to sign up.
Publish interesting and timely information about the wine community of Napa Valley
Twice a year we publish our members' magazine, the NVWLA REPORT. Each issue includes interviews with Napa Valley winemakers, winery principals, winegrowers, and practitioners of allied crafts as well as summaries of NVWLA events that year. We do our best to provide our readership with a look over the shoulder at the wine community of Napa Valley. Book reviews, project reports and related subjects may also be included in a timely manner.
Maintain a collection of materials all about wine.
A wing of the Saint Helena Public Library is devoted to the Napa Valley Wine Library Collection; its circulating collection includes published wine-related works that are both popular and technical. Reference-only resources such as rare books, archival still and moving images, transcripts of interviews, wine labels, and notebooks are available for research in the Mondavi and California Rooms of the library.
