Another of many reasons to come to beautiful Napa Valley is the Napa Valley Mustard Celebration. While the grape vines are dormant and resting for the coming season each winter, mustard blooms appear between and around the vineyard rows. From January to March, the incredible Napa Valley scene takes on a distinct bright yellow glow from the mustard plants before they disappear as the first signs of life appear on the grape vines.

The breathtaking beauty of this annual development draws many visitors to the area to marvel at the unique color show throughout the Valley.

And not surprisingly, this colorful emergence has inspired Napa Valley’s Mustard Celebration, a time when businesses and wineries present a variety of fascinating events that celebrate Art, Wine, and the awe-inspiring beauty of the season.

During the Celebration, many Napa Valley restaurants, coffee shops, and wineries offer special events, foods, and art with themes related to the glory of the mustard-accented landscape throughout the region.

Handwritten Wines, a premier Yountville boutique winery, will present two special events to celebrate this unique season.

Handwritten Wines Poetry Workshop, February 26th @ 5:00 pm

To celebrate the glorious setting surrounding their boutique winery, Handwritten Wines presents its Poetry Workshop on Sunday, February 26th, at 5:00 pm at their Yountville Tasting Room. The workshop’s theme will celebrate the “Landscape of Napa Valley and Our Lives,” an invitation to recognize the beauty of the mustard season while spurring each participant’s personal “Handwritten” inspirations.

When reflecting on the unique terroir of Napa Valley in terms of wine, we don’t always recognize the terroir of our own lives. What circumstances have shaped us into the unique individuals that we have become? What influences have carried us throughout our lives?

So, for aspiring poets, what does mustard really mean to you? For many, mustard is the most innocent of influences as a condiment for hotdogs and a recollection of a particular setting or event. For others, mustard might be a remembrance or dream of the cobblestoned streets of Dijon or some spiritual parable seared into their memory. Has mustard colored your life somehow, or does it conjure up a particular emotion or memory?

Participants in the Mustard celebration Poetry Workshop at Handwritten Wines Yountville Tasting Room at 6494 Washington Street in Yountville will enjoy the following:

  • Guided workshop
  • Glass of wine, a Handwritten Wines Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Cheese/charcuterie
  • Parting gift

From Dijon to Yountville: A Celebration of Mustard, Cheese & Wine – Friday, March 3rd @ 6 pm
