Hello Lovelies! Today on the blog I’m sharing our amazing time at the Napa Valley Wine Tasting with Willow Park Wines & Spirits here in Calgary. We had such a great time, and learned more than I even thought was possible. It was a special connoisseur event led by their Fine Wine Director, Peter Smolarz, who highlighted some of the Napa Valley regions’ best wines. Peter also discussed the different vintages for collectors to know, along with key wineries to watch! Check out our experience on the vlog here.
There were eight of us attending the event, which was set up in the private tasting room. Upon arrival we each received a glass of the Domaine Carneros Brut and explored all the wine region maps. We got to taste six different wines from the Napa Valley region, and they were all perfectly matched with food pairing suggestions. I was so amazed by how delicious the food was! We had grilled salmon with dill, a delicious cheese plate complete with dried figs and grapes, as well as some roast beef and mushroom crostinis – YUM!
It is so incredible all you can learn about a different region just by the wine that is produced and the flavors and aromas that come along with it. Learning more about the Napa Valley region made me want to be there, now! I think it is definitely a must-see trip for us in the future. At the end of the evening we proceeded down to the wine festival where we got to try some of their featured wines, and more amazing food! Such an incredible night! What are some of your favorite wine regions in the world? <3
