Singing in the Rain for Taste of Yountville
Celebrated for the 18th time this year, A Taste of Yountville fell on a rather stormy Saturday mid-March. Despite the weather – pouring rain and strong wind – gourmet food from the local chefs was duly paired with the best wines of Napa Valley, and the attending public enjoyed the many offerings, as well as arts and crafts fair, and live music by multiple bands.
In the Hotel Luca’s cozy courtyard, Cantinetta Piero’s executive chef Craig DiFonzo joined forces with Sedna Winery for his spit roasted suckling pig and house made ravioli.
Bistro Jeanty kept its tomato soup hot for all the rain-soaked warmth-seekers. Redd offered another great warming-up option with a delicious white bean soup, and Villagio Inn & Spa joined the trend with its green chili.
Bouchon Bistro, in the Edward James Courtyard, presented its beef rillettes on baguette toasts, and Bouchon Bakery – its famous cupcakes and cookies.
There were even garden tours given at the world-famous French Laundry Gardens, attended by more than a few Taste of Yountville revelers.
Rain or shine, all the great gourmet venues and wineries of Yountville are out there year round – just a short drive from the city of San Francisco.
