With over 450 wineries in Napa Valley, events that bring together multiple wineries in one location is one way for visitors to experience as much as they can in one day. On Saturday, June 14th, Charles Krug Winery hosts the 19th Annual Taste of Howell Mountain. From 12pm to 5pm, ticket holders will be able to choose wines from 35 wineries creating wines from grapes grown in the Howell Mountain sub-appellation of Napa Valley.
Participating Wineries include:
Black Stallion Winery
Current Releases include Red Blends, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Rose, and Sauvignon Blanc. If you have an opportunity to visit the winery on another day, you’ll find comfortable outdoor seating with vineyard views.
Their estate-grown Howell Mountain wines include a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Sauvignon Blanc. Make an appointment to visit the winery for a tasting and tour of their Howell Mountain estate which includes exploration of their vineyard and wine cave.
Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon at it’s best! The winery offers a variety of experiences for tasting, tasting and tour, and the ultimate experience for small groups including both a tasting and tour and private lunch.
Along with stunning wines, visitors will enjoy food pairings from winery chefs, and live music performed by the Hummingbirdz Blues Band. The afternoon begins with wine tasting, food pairings, and a silent auction, all until 3pm. From 3pm to 5pm, the wine tasting continues with dessert pairings and a live auction. Auction items include wine experiences at wineries, rare wines from select wineries, and exclusive dining and travel experiences.
