While much of the country may be pulling on stylish boots and bundling up in sweaters, weâ€™re in summer redux here in Napa Valley. Predicted highs of 99 degrees coincided with Saturdayâ€™s harvest party, which meant we saw a lot of summer outfits. Who’s to judge if white is worn after Labor Day? Not weâ€”though do be careful around the Cabernet.
Dan Martin and the Noma Rocksteady Band played while guests mingled sampling pizzas hot from the wood-burning oven and passed hors dâ€™oeuvres. We took guests on behind-the-scenes tours, showing them everything from processing fruit that came in that morning to rehydrating yeast, punch downs and tasting wines that were partway through fermentation.
And there was wine, of course! We poured current release bottles, plus a few treats from the cellar.
