General Manager Don Shindle of The Westin Verasa Napa,  is pleased to announce the property will hold its second annual Wine, Women and Wellness event March 6 through 9.  Wine, Women and Wellness is a culinary, viticulture and relaxation-inspired weekend getaway created expressly to celebrate women.  The month of March is Women’s History Month in the U.S. and International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8.

“The Westin Verasa Napa is proud to present this exciting line up of weekend activities created just for women,” said Shindle.  “We’ve assembled high-profile female-powered collaborations on the wine, culinary and wellness fronts, and coupled with the property’s signature blend of relaxation and rejuvenation, this offering provides an ideal girls’ getaway retreat to the Napa Valley.”

The festivities will kick off on Thursday, March 6, with a wine reception followed by a Michelin Star four-course event on the dazzling La Toque Terrace.  Well known by foodies and truffle lovers, Chef Ken Frank will create a menu of sumptuous courses paired with wines by female winemakers from the Napa Valley.


On Friday evening, March 7, the hotel will host a Grand Wine Tasting Event from 5 to 7 p.m.  Notable female winemakers will offer tastes of their bottle selections, including Pam Starr, Heidi Barrett, Mary Rocca, Ashley Heisey, Delia Viader, Mia Klein, Nova Cadamatre and Bibiana González Rave.  Small bites will also be served during the tasting.

The Westin Verasa Napa’s Wine, Women and Wellness getaway weekend will also offer relaxing activities geared just for women.  On Friday, guests can begin the day with a renewing walk with the property’s onsite running concierge, or take part in a morning yoga session led by Lululemon instructor Buddy Macuha.  Guests are invited to book in-room treatments with Gloria Curry Day spa, also included in one of the packages.  Additionally on Saturday, from 5 to 8 p.m., 29 Luxury Goods by Lydia Mondavi will present a spring makeup demonstration showing attendees the most updated styles for the season.  To close out the weekend, on Sunday, March 9, Sophie Jaffe of Philosophie will be on hand for a Superfoods Cleansing Workshop at 10 a.m., showcasing ways to naturally recharge your body after a weekend of fun!

Built into the schedule is plenty of time to relax around the heated saltwater pool and hot tub, or to explore and experience the offerings of local female winemakers.  Attend any of the nightly Westin Unwind wine receptions, held in the lobby from 5 to 7 p.m., or use the provided map listing the female winemakers’ respective tasting rooms to visit them in person.
