Event Season in Wine Country

Posted on March 02, 2019

Events abound in wine country for those embarking on Napa Valley wine tours or Sonoma wine tours starting in the spring! Every year the wine country near the bay area bustles with fun events both large and small, bringing out delicious eats along with world-class wine. All make great reasons to come up and socialize during any Napa Valley wine tours, Sonoma wine tours, and individual events worth adding to your calendar.

Napa Valley Events

No mention of Napa Valley events could be mentioned without bringing up Bottlerock. This huge multi-day music festival at the Napa Valley Expo happens every year and this year is bringing in big name acts like Imagine Dragons, Pharrell Williams, Mumford and Sons and Carlos Santana. It’s quite the bash so be sure to book your Napa Valley wine tours early as spots will quickly fill up during this busy weekend. If you’re looking to escape Napa during this weekend, consider joining us at any of our Sonoma wine tours.

The lovely Arts in April event series comes around soon. This fun event series is a collection of exciting art exhibitions, live music gatherings, culinary events that occur throughout the month (find out the individual event details here). Make sure to start planning out which events to attend and which day to save for Napa Valley wine tours or Sonoma wine tours.

A great addition to any Napa Valley wine tours would be a trip up to Calistoga for the smaller but still delicious Calistoga Food and Wine Grand Tasting where 40 Calistoga wineries gather to taste folks on their wares and enjoy fantastic bites at the luxurious Solage Calistoga resort.

Sonoma Events

Sonoma is no slouch when it comes to great events either! Among the many large and small events happening county-wide, a few stand out to be an accoutrement to your Sonoma wine tours weekend. Valley of the Moon Music Festival is a unique event series that occurs over three separate July weekends in which talented classical artists perform concerts at Valley of the Moon winery and mingle with listeners afterwards. A couple of selected nights even include dinner at the Valley of the Moon Winery’s Madrone Estate.

The Sonoma International Film Festival also gathers people from far and wide to enjoy over 90 different films of varying genres from short films to documentaries and more. Of course, food and Sonoma county wine will play a large part in the festivities at the film festival. These lovely gatherings would make fantastic ends to a day of enjoying Sonoma wine tours!

So much to do and so much wine to drink. What more could one ask for during a perfect Napa Valley wine tours or Sonoma wine tours weekend? And these events don’t even scratch the surface of the fun you can have this year in wine country. Check out visitnapavalley.com or sonomacounty.com to see even more exciting goings-on this year!
