August 14, 2009 Festival del Sole
Festival del Sole takes place every summer in the Napa Valley. The Festival features concerts by some of the world’s most celebrated musical artists, five-star cuisine, opulent venues, art exhibits, and wines from Napa’s top vintners, all blended in a unique celebration of the art of life. On Wednesday, July 22nd 2009, Pride Mountain Vineyards was honored to participate in the Festival, playing host to thirty guests who enjoyed a spellbinding outdoor musical program by Duo Doori-Moa (violinist Michelle Lee & cellist Taeho Oh), a three course lunch prepared by Tra Vigne Chef Nash Cognetti, and a variety of wines presented by the entire Pride family and winemaker Sally Johnson. The afternoon concluded with a barrel tasting tour through the caves, led by owner Steve Pride, who offered guests a sneak preview of the upcoming 2008 Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
