What to Wear: Napa Valley Chic
Weather in the Napa Valley can range from warm days to cool evenings. We are relaxed and love to have fun, and encourage you to dress festively. The Friday evening dinner and Sunday morning brunch for VIPs will be held outside so shoes appropriate for grass are recommended, and a pashmina or jacket are encouraged. For the Saturday evening event, leave the black-tie attire at home, but a festive dress or a well-tailored suit is always in style.
