After running into Scott Lewis a few days ago, the owner of V Wine Cellars in Yountville (where we have tasted with a number of producers over the years), we were reminded of a special event coming up on May 7th. This, only the third annual “Sense Yountville” has already become the appellation’s premiere wine & food event.
Thirty wineries are represented offering their pre-release wines and large format bottles, and culinary pairings are provided by local restaurants. Arguably Yountville is the culinary hub of Napa Valley and principals, winemakers and chefs are on hand. Some of the top restaurants will be represented including Bouchon, Redd, Mustard’s, Michael Chiarello’s Bottega and more.
The event is limited to only 350 guests. The date coincides with the Kentucky Derby so after the Tastings and Future Sales from 11-3pm there is of course a “Derby Party” – more information and tickets are available by visiting: www.senseyountville.com
