Save the date for the first annual Calistoga Food and Wine celebration on Friday, April 11. Hosted by Solage Calistoga – the beautiful, eco-luxurious resort in Napa Valley with stunning views of the Mayacama Mountains -the program’s “Grand Tasting” will feature live music from the Tipsy Gypsy Quartet and samplings from 30 premiere Calistoga wineries paired with bites and small plates from the Solbar kitchen. The event will be co-hosted by the Calistoga Winegrowers and Executive Chef Brandon Sharp who helms the resort’s Michelin-starred Solbar restaurant.
