Our 2010 Food and Wine Events

At the Wine Country Inn, we know you love food and wine. While the Napa Valley has many great food and wine options, we’ve also put together our own food and wine events for 2010. Each event will be fun, educational, and—we hope—a celebration of our 35 years helping guests experience the wonderful food and wine the Napa Valley has to offer. Fun Thursdays Each Thursday April through November, we will be hosting a special food and wine educational event in the Inn's Common Room from 6-7 p.m. These events are complimentary to Inn guests (and subject to availability). First Thursday: "All About Olive Oil" with Chef Diane DeFilipi Second Thursday: "Cheese Tasting" with Dean & DeLuca Third Thursday: "Stories from the Vineyard" with grapegrower and winemaker Pete Hoffman Fourth Thursday: "Chocolate Tasting" with Woodhouse Chocolate Food and Wine Pairing Classes Marty Paradise, one of our Inn-cursion wine tour drivers, will host a series of food and wine pairing classes at Wine Country Inn. These classes will take place the second and fourth Mondays of the month, June through October, from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Cost per person will be $10. Anniversary Italian Al Fresco Dinners We will be hosting nine specials dinners this August and September to help celebrate our 35th anniversary. Click here for more info.
