Calistoga Harvest Table

Date: TBD

Another one of the tasty wine and food events in Napa in September is the Calistoga Harvest Table, celebrating the plentiful harvest season with 13 local restaurants and 44 wineries.

To get a seat at the 1,000 feet of tables set out in the middle of downtown, make sure to buy your tickets with anticipation, as this event may very well sell out.

The drinks start flowing at 4:30 pm and dinner is served at 6pm for this sophisticated Sunday evening event.

PGA Tour, Fortinet Championship

Dates: TBD

Tickets: Available for All Days

The Fortinet Championship golf tournament will be held once again on the pristine PGA courses at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa.

Your golf event ticket also gets you admission into the after-golf concerts, Food and Wine Pavilion, Beers fore Birdies happy hour, Spirits Lounge, and Brew Loft.

This year's concerts include Brothers Osborne, Stone Temple Pilots, and +LIVE+.

Bale Grist Mill Harvest Dinner

Date: 9/28

Head on over to Saint Helena for the annual Harvest Dinner, a friendly outdoor community gathering at the Bale Grist Mill. This park has great historical significance, as the mill is older than the city itself, and helped to sustain the pioneers who set up the town's first church. 

This wholesome tradition is a lantern-lit dinner event catered by Elaine Bell, complete with checkered tablecloths and the huge restored (and still functioning!) waterwheel of the mill as the scenic backdrop. 

In addition to good food and conversation, there will be a live auction as well.

Herold Harvest Celebration

Date: TBD

Times: 5:30 - 7:30 pm

This is the first annual vineyard dinner hosted by accomplished Napa Valley winemaker, Mark Herold, in one of his original vineyard sites in Coombsville. As a nod to Mark's heritage, multiple courses of Panamanian-style tapas will be served alongside a Cabernet-focused lineup of current release wines.

Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to be the first to sample a selection of wines prior to their release. Come join Mark and his team for an intimate evening in the vineyard as we toast to harvest and enjoy delicious cuisine!

RSVP is required. Tickets at $125.
