This year marks the 6th year in a row that Southern Napa has been invited to and has attended what is known as 'PNV'. We are still the only wine store to be invited or to have purchased bottles during the auction from Alabama!
We got in around five o'clock last night to the guest house we are lucky enough to stay in each year in Yountville. Then we went to Thomas Keller's new Mexican spot La Calenda. Just opened last month, great vibe and exceptional food as to be expected from Chef Keller and team.
This is a trade only week of events, about 1,200 wine professionals are in the valley this week for tastings, symposiums, learning, laughing and of course enjoying the best Cabernets on the planet!
Everything gets really cranked up tomorrow night (Wednesday) but, we have 2 days of meetings and tastings with some of our Napa Valley friends and favorites!
Today we will have lunch with Hugh Davies, vintner of Schramsberg, followed by a tasting and visit with the wonderful owners of Taplin Cellars, then a dinner with Dave Miner of Miner Family Wines. We'll keep you posted through from 'The Best Week of the Year in Napa."
