Yesterday was an amazing day at Taste of Oakville. We attended the Master Class education seminars and the grand tasting where we learned the beautiful history of this world famous region. Located in the heart of Napa Valley, Oakville is two miles wide and extends to one thousand feet in elevation. It stretches from the Vaca Mountains in the east to the Mayacamas in the west. The well-drained soils, sun drenched summers and cool falls make this territory an ideal place to grow Cabernet Sauvignon.
Officially recognized by the American Viticultural Association in 1993, Oakville now boasts more than 60 growers and wineries. Each spring, the Oakville Winegrowers welcome distinguished members of the international wine trade and press to the Taste of Oakville, where tastemakers and wine merchants are offered a sneak peak at soon-to-be-released vintages.
