BottleRock Napa Valley sits at the epicenter of America’s wine and food playground, and the 2014 event May 30-June 1 delivers an impressive line up of Napa Valley and Northern California’s best chefs, restaurants and wineries for a gustatory festival experience that is second to none.
Situated on four stages on 26 acres just blocks from Downtown Napa, more than 60 artists will be surrounded by superstar vintners like Miner Family Winery, Cakebread Cellars and Schramberg and restaurants including Morimoto, Angele, The Thomas and Oakville Grocery. Iconic chefs Ken Frank of La Toque, Richard Reddington of Redd, and Oenotri’s Tyler Rodde headline the culinary stage in the Platinum Lounge with Master Sommeliers pouring rare wines, only in wine country.
“Throwing a festival in the heart of the Napa Valley gives us amazing access on the wine and culinary front,” said Latitude 38’s CEO David Graham. “Chefs and culinary superstars along with winemakers all rocking out together makes BottleRock totally unique. No other festival matches the quality of wine and food offerings BottleRock provides.”
