With performances by multi-platinum-selling musicians, food by celebrity chefs and local stars, and the finest Napa Valley wines, the 2015 Yountville Live event offers the ultimate Wine Country experience March 19-22 in Yountville, the heart of the Napa Valley.

Long considered the culinary and viticulture heart of Napa Valley, the Town of Yountville is the ideal venue for what is billed as the ultimate luxury get-away event. With its world-class restaurants and lodging, and many of the valley’s most celebrated wineries, Yountville combines a small-town ambiance with a sophisticated lifestyle rooted in food, wine, arts, unrivaled scenery and access to outdoor pursuits.

“Yountville is home to this event because it’s the perfect showcase for this unsurpassed offering of food, wine and musical talent,” said Cindy Saucerman, President and CEO of the Yountville Chamber of Commerce. “We are already known as the heart of the Napa Valley, where small-town ambiance meets sophisticated Wine Country lifestyle, so it makes perfect sense that our town would host this intimate and world-class food, wine and music experience.”

Yountville Live provides a limited number of attendees unparalleled access to top recording artists, winemakers, and world- renowned chefs during a four-day event consisting of private and exclusive acoustic concerts, wine tastings, sumptuous meals, and private winery tours. The Napa Valley’s finest resorts and intimate inns are host to attendees who enjoy a total immersion in music, wine and food – not to mention Yountville’s spectacular Wine Country setting and breathtaking scenery. No other public show offers the access and intimacy afforded attendees by Yountville Live.

FOOD. Yountville Live features numerous local, national and celebrity executive chefs. Attendees enjoy world class foods, exclusive cooking demonstrations, a variety of local artisan foods and farm fresh products throughout the weekend.

WINE. Yountville Live breaks out into different tracks over the course of the weekend, providing smaller, more intimate tasting events for guests. Several events are hosted at wineries that are among the Napa Valley’s most notable and feature acoustic performances, tastings and food-and-wine pairings.

MUSIC. Yountville Live features intimate performances by multi-platinum and up-and-coming musicians, with a special focus on emerging talent. The small performing venues make it possible for guests to make personal connections and share memorable experiences with the artists in a social environment.
