Tickets Available Beginning Today for Flavor! Napa Valley 2012

Starting today, tickets are officially on sale for Flavor! Napa Valley, a five-day Napa Valley food and wine festival featuring the area's superlative chefs, restaurants and wineries. Held from November 14 - 18, the festival format includes a series of creative tastings and seasonally-inspired meals, as well as a variety of hands-on and educational experiences led by the region's most notable chefs, vintners and sommeliers.

   Event venues include founding sponsor Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) at Greystone in St. Helena, as well as restaurants and wineries throughout the region. Events range from a new series of small and hands-on immersions entitled Terroir to Table to a historic, two-day library tasting of Napa Valley's most celebrated wines in the last 50-years, including today's "cult" wines, appropriately named The Legends of Napa Valley: A Definitive Tasting. Net proceeds from all events support programs and scholarships at CIA's Greystone Campus.

Individual event tickets range from $85 To $325, with the historic, two-day Legends of Napa Valley tasting at $3,500 per person. Many of the area's lodging partners are offering special Flavor! Napa Valley packages that combine a stay with festival tickets, such as Silverado Resort and Spa's Flavor! Napa Valley package, which includes accommodations in a one-bedroom Fireplace Suite, breakfast for two in The Grill, a signature culinary welcome gift and tickets to Amusee Napa: A Downtown Napa Tasting on Wednesday, November 14.
