10th Annual Taste of Atlas Peak: October 30 at Silverado ResortSep 30, 2021 11:49AM ● By Fran Miller
This year’s 10th Annual Taste of Atlas Peak, October 30th from 1pm – 4pm, promises to be a memorable tasting event as winegrowers, vintners, and wine enthusiasts gather to celebrate the rustic elegance of Atlas Peak Appellation wines and raise funds for a cause that is especially important to Napa Valley community members. In collaboration with the Napa Communities Firewise Foundation (NCFF), Taste of Atlas Peak will call on sponsorships and donations, in addition to ticket sales, to help support and sustain local fire-safety efforts. Net proceeds from this year’s event will be distributed through the NCFF to various fire safety projects, including fuel reduction, fire breaks, and the IQ Firewatch system.
Held at the beautiful Silverado Resort & Spa, 1600 Atlas Peak Rd., Napa, the event features an exclusive walk-around tasting, the opportunity to mingle with winemakers, and gourmet food pairings. Guests will also experience live music plus an auction of collectable wines, local art, lodging and dining, and other highly desirable lots.
Tickets are $150 per person and can be purchased here: https://bit.ly/EventbriteTicketsToAP2021.
Winegrowing families and winemakers have been growing grapes and making wines in this renowned region since 1870. The committed and passionate locals on Atlas Peak worked to distinguish their rocky, volcanic landscape as a unique and singular place, and the appellation gained its official status in 1992. The association believes in community, preserving the land, fostering new friendships, and sharing the furrowed beauty of their grape-growing region with wine enthusiasts and collectors, and world travelers. The Atlas Peak Appellation works to promote the prestige, and enhance the reputation of, Atlas Peak wines, as well as educate wine aficionados about the rare and distinct wines that Atlas Peak produces.
