BACKGROUND:

The Napa Valley Vintners Association tours numerous domestic and international markets each year, in an effort to educate members of the wine trade and media about traditional and sparkling wines produced in Napa County, California.

Tour 2000 is designed to explore trade and consumer expectations of 21st century Napa Valley wines and the ideas that will define viticultural strategies and techniques over the next decade. The vintners will answer questions and, of course, offer tastes of wines that may define the future flavors of the Napa Valley. Vintners will also be pouring their favorite selections from magnums - a new element to the traditional tasting.
