Electric car charging stations
A few forward-thinking wineries in the Napa Valley have installed electric car charging stations. Imagine driving up to a winery in your electric car and recharging your car while you recharge your palate with a taste of some of Napa Valley’s famous wines. At the moment we know that these wineries have electric car charging stations: Jarvis Winery, Cade Winery, Hall, and Clif Family Winery.

St. Supery Free Outdoor Concert
In honor of St. Supery’s French heritage, the winery is planning a special event for Sunday, April 29, 1 to 4pm. It will be an afternoon filled with French jazz, French food, and St. Supery’s estate-grown Bordeaux wine varietals. The concert will feature the Ronchin Jazz Band. The concert is free but you must RSVP. More information.

Costco Documentary
Many Costco stores in the Bay Area feature Napa Valley wines at amazing discounts. Do you ever wonder how Costco can sell their wines for much less than you can find them at the winery? Well, then, tune in to CNBC News for the original documentary: “The Costco Craze: Inside the Warehouse Giant.” The program premieres Thursday, April 26th at 9pm et/pt on CNBC. More information
