Up in Napa, Stewart Cellars is hosting its inaugural spring soirée tomorrow from 1 to 4 p.m. The winery’s first ever vintage of Sonoma Mountain Rosé will make its debut at the event. There will be live music by the Hot Shots, a flower crown station by Tango and Foxtrot, Hog Island oysters, and Southern-inspired snacks from Gather Cafe. Stewart’s Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc will also be poured and Noble Ice Cream is whipping up a batch of frozé. “We invite our wine club members and new friends to Stewart Cellars to come and enjoy a fun-filled spring day at our Yountville home,” said Caroline Stewart Guthrie, co-proprietor in a statement. “Sweet and savory bites, as well as food and wine pairings make for a perfect day of enjoyment celebrating our southern roots.” Sounds like a party that is not to be missed!

Sofia Brut Rosé is crafted in the style of French Crémant and is available in bottles and the mini 187 ml cans with straws. “This 2016 Sofia Brut Rosé is styled after my favorite sparkling Rosés of Loire and Alsace in France,” Sofia Coppola said in a statement. “I spend a lot of time in France and have always loved sparkling rosé so I am happy to add this to the line.”
