Yet, despite its long and illustrious reputation for excellence in the viticulture and culinary world, it has only been since 2011 that Napa has hosted its own festival, Flavor! Napa Valley Food & Wine Festival. This year, the fest takes place from November 20-24.
Having attended, one might say it was worth the wait. Taking place the week before Thanksgiving, five days and nights are devoted to the celebration of all things Napa. In one place, you have the origins of what has made the American wine scene so renowned. Imagine being in the spot where the combination of people, place and product makes for sensational synergy.
