Napa Valley Grapegrowers (NVG) and Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) are gearing up for their annual event to be held on April 13 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in Napa, CA. The event will celebrate the success of the 2023 vintage, which is being hailed as one of the best years ever in wine country.

Ferguson presented charts showing that between September of 2022 and August of 2023, 40 percent of planted Napa wine grape acreage was not only harvested but produced exceptional quality fruit. This high percentage is a testament to the dedication and skill of the grape growers in the region.

From the St. Helena Star's 2023 harvest reports series, a vineyard on Atlas Peak is highlighted. Despite the challenges posed by high temperatures during the growing season, the Napa Valley harvest still managed to produce outstanding grapes that have resulted in exceptional wines.

The viticultural trade group has chosen Caleb Mosley as its new executive director. With almost two decades of experience in vine management, Mosley is well-equipped to lead the Napa Valley Grapegrowers into the future and continue the tradition of producing world-class grapes.

Napa Valley Grapegrowers and Napa Valley Vintners are proud to present the 20th annual Afternoon in the Napa Valley event. This year's celebration will be a showcase of the region's exceptional wines and the hard work of the grape growers who make it all possible.

In the Napa Valley, winemakers are raising a glass to the 2023 vintage, which is being hailed as one of the best years ever in wine country. Both red and white wines from the region are receiving high praise for their quality and flavor profiles.

Napa Valley Grapegrowers recently announced Caleb Mosley as its executive director, a position he officially assumed on February 5. Mosley has been a member of the board of directors since 2019 and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role.

ST. HELENA, Calif., (Dec. 4, 2023) - Vintners in Napa Valley are basking in the success of the 2023 harvest, which was the longest growing season in a decade. The extended season allowed for optimal ripening of the grapes, resulting in wines of exceptional quality.

Domaine Chandon in Yountville began harvesting for its sparkling varietals on August 24. The early start to the harvest season was a strategic move to ensure that the grapes were picked at the peak of ripeness, leading to the production of high-quality sparkling wines.
