Yountville Live is March 16-19

For those not familiar with Napa Valley and Northern California, the name Yountville might not mean much. For those who are wine and food lovers, it means the very best of both. After all, Yountville sits smack dab in the middle of the valley and is home to The French Laundry and other fine dining establishments. It's no wonder that an event including food, wine, and music would catch the attention of those who love some or all three.

Yountville Live will be taking place from March 16th through March 19th and includes a number of events to suit anyone's choice.

I'll be there for the food, since I don't drink.  The chefs of interest to me are, of course, the famous ones: Thomas Keller, Michael Chiarello, Chris Cosentino, and more. The music is sure to be great when you consider that Five for Fighting is the headliner.

People who have long wanted to attend the “Live In The Vineyard” festival can now purchase tickets to this publicly ticketed festival that has an even larger focus on culinary events but still highlights and celebrates music and wine. World renowned and celebrated chefs set to take part in Yountville Live are Graham Elliot, Gale Gand, Victor Scargle, Thomas Keller Group - Team USA, Michael Chiarello, Art Cohtino, Bob Hurley, Carey Delbridge, Nate Lindsay, Chris Cosentino, Chris Kollar, Chris Patrick, Claudia Sansone, David Roberts, Dean James Max, Ernesto Martinez and more. There will be pourings by some of the most revered vintners including Aaron Pott, Benoit Touquette, and Julien Fayard and high end wineries including Jessup Cellars, Trinchero, Robert Mondavi Winery, Franciscan Estate Winery, Stewart Cellars, Campana Ranch Winery, Azur, Miner Family Winery, Far Niente Winery, Nickel & Nickel Winery, Silver Trident Winery, Handwritten, Priest Ranch Winery and more. Considered the culinary heart of Napa Valley, Yountville is the ultimate luxury get-away. With its world-class restaurants and accommodations, and many of the Valley's most celebrated wineries, Yountville marries a breath-taking setting and small-town ambiance with a sophisticated Wine Country lifestyle.
