Get ready for a Sunday in wine country full of music, music, and more music. Unlike other festivals that gather thousands of people together for multiple performances in one venue, Napa Live offers several smaller concerts spread out among 30 indoor businesses and three outdoor parks. It makes for a beautiful afternoon comprised of unique experiences.
If you want to sample the best of Napa Valley wines in a beautiful, natural environment, head over to Pioneer Park in Calistoga this Saturday afternoon, where more than 30 of the finest wineries in Napa Valley will gather together for the annual Calistoga Wine Experience. Sample delicious wines, meet the winemakers, and enjoy local culinary treats while listening to live gypsy jazz.
