Sixth Annual “Sense Yountville” Napa Valley Wine Event – Saturday May 3, 2014

Sense pouring wine

Spend time at a beautiful venue in world renowned Yountville, have one-on-one conversations with the marquis names of Napa Valley vintners, enjoy tasting savory bites at the whim of the chef and end your day taking home amazing bottles of small production wines at special event prices. Sound like a good day? You may accomplish all of the above and more at the 6th Annual Sense Yountville, Saturday May 3 at V Marketplace-Vintage Estate. Along with enjoying some of the best the Napa Valley has to offer, you may feel good knowing that your purchases will benefit veterans of current wars.

“While our participating winemakers and chefs are marquis names at world-class events all over the country, this is about hometown pride right here in our own backyard,” notes Scott Lewis, proprietor of V Wine Cellar, the organizer of the event. “Napa Valley is a mecca for both food and wine lovers; this event was designed to showcase what we do right here at home, and being able to help our Vets certainly sweetens the deal this year.”


Whether you’re looking for an exclusive opportunity to lay hands on highly allocated wines, or hoping to discover some of Napa Valley’s hidden gems, this curated tasting replete with bespoke pairings from Yountville’s top chefs delivers more than 20 wineries and a dozen chefs under a single roof. Participating wineries include: Balius, Casa Piena, Mark Herold Wines, Paradigm, Pneu, Realm, Maze Wines, Oakville East, Farella Vineyards, Circadia, Poe, Vineyard House, Red Mare, Sciandri Family Vineyards, Trinchero Estates, Dominus, Ghost Block, Lobo Wines, Marston Family Vineyards & more. Leading restaurants including Ad Hoc, Bottega Ristorante, Bouchon, Hurley’s Restaurant & Bar, Lucy Restaurant & Bar at Bardessono, Torc, Bistro Jeanty, Redd, Villagio Inn & Spa at the Vintage Estate, NapaStyle and artisan chocolates from Kollar Chocolates & more.


Sense Yountville was launched in 2009 to provide guests with unprecedented access to the wines and food that define the Napa Valley. Participating restaurants and wineries are represented by principals: winemakers & chefs who are personally committed to creating an outstanding guest experience in their hometown. For 2014, a portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit The Pathway Home, a nationally-acclaimed Yountville-based residential program serving veterans of current wars. The event is limited to 350 guests to maintain quality of both food and wine on offer and targets discerning wine buyers — epicureans seeking an excellent value on both marquis names and small, lesser-known producers.

(In)Famously, Sense Yountville culminates in a live feed Kentucky Derby viewing and artisan cocktail soiree, by SF’s own Bourbon & Branch. Dress in your finest seersucker or summer frock and chapeau and simulate the experience of Churchill Downs by sipping a specialty Mint Julep and cheering on your favorite thoroughbred.

Informal modeling of summer fashions, exclusive prize drawings to benefit The Pathway Home and entertainment round out the eventful day. Tickets are available online at or call 707-944-5625. Pictures are available upon request.
