It’s only 2 weeks until our legendary Taste of Yountville Grand Tasting event, and we’ve got the ultimate trifecta coming your way!

Jam packed with sensational food, vintage wines, and acoustic music, this is an event unlike any other. Buckle up for this unforgettable 2-day weekend, because it’s going to be one wild ride.

Three tasting venues across town will be hosting 35 top restaurants, over 60 wineries, 18 live musical performances, and 6 chef demos! 




Kicking off the Grand Tasting is a 30-minute demo with the one and only Carl Hazel, who will be pairing marbled meats with perfectly aged whiskey. If seafood is your style, pop over to Shrimp, Spin & Rock at the Villagio Pavillion for a taste of Jarvis Green’s succulent shrimp! Wherever you decide to go, all events will be delivering tunes from the best up and coming artists in the music industry.

You won’t want to miss out on songwriter Jaden Michaels performing her hit single “Walk On” at Stewart Cellars, and the feel good music doesn’t stop there.

Throughout the day this fine winery will be featuring performances by indie pop group Sawyer, rock star David Hodges, and ‘Beauty in Despair’ producer Emerson Hart w/ David Ryan Harris.

At the gorgeous Jessup Cellars we’re bringing back old soul and rock n’ roll with Kingsborough, and continuing the good vibes with Quiet on the Set. Later in the day, you’ll hear acoustic gold from Keelan Donovan and end the day with a blend Folk and Blues from Corey Harper.

The best part: this is all just on the first day. Sunday’s Grand Tasting event has even more signature dishes from celebrity chefs, local wineries serving up divine blends, and international recording artists!



If you’re a wine aficionado, upgrade your weekend with some vine to wine knowledge. Offering even more luxury and class is the Grand Cru Tasting, where Napa Valley’s most extraordinary winemakers will be offering exclusive selections of their top-shelf wines.
