If you plan to go to the 2024 event, you can expect to see more than 70 wineries, breweries, restaurants and culinary artisans in attendance. A DJ set provides live music throughout the day. A Reserve Tasting Salon, which you can access with an upgraded ticket, offers tastings and culinary experiences; guests with a Tasting Salon ticket also enjoy early access to the event and can sample wines from the festival’s partner, Wines of Great Britain.


“Taste of Napa attendees have the opportunity to sample many extraordinary culinary and wine offerings all in one place,” described Rick Walker, CEO, Festival Napa Valley. “The generosity and enduring commitment of our partner wineries, breweries and culinary businesses make it all possible. Many have participated since the inaugural Taste of Napa 18 years ago. Their support is an essential ingredient in the ongoing success of this grand tasting event, helping to showcase the very best of Napa Valley and the world of wine.”
