We cherish the history of our wine community in Napa Valley and the chance to provide wine appreciation events throughout the year.
We look forward to your participation.
Our 59th Annual Grand Tasting features 50 prestigious Napa Valley wineries pouring wines selected from case productions of all sizes—from less than 50 to more than 3,000 cases with most from 1,000 or less. Wineries have been invited to pour two wines.
The tasting is outdoors in the Grove at Silverado—a beautiful setting for a truly delicious as well as educational afternoon. Expect to taste very special wines as you explore varieties, vintages, and wineries new to you and kindle friendships within our Napa Valley wine community.
Current Covid-19 protocols will be observed at this event.

Frona Eunice Wait (Mrs. Colburn) was an author and slide lecturer. Following the publication of her book Wines & Vines of California, in 1889 she lectured throughout the state on wine and viticulture. Dr. Maynard Amerine first met her in 1935. She later came to UC Davis to present her program. Her collection of historic lantern slides was entrusted to Amerine for safekeeping and he, in turn, donated the slides to the Napa Valley Wine Library in 1981. The collection documents the wineries, winegrowing and winemaking in Napa, Sonoma and Fresno Counties and the Livermore Valley in the 1880’s and includes some of the earliest images known of Inglenook Winery and Greystone Cellars.
