Flowering of the Vines
With Live Entertainment

The Napa Valley Reserve celebrates the beginning of the growing season with one of our time-honored events, The Flowering of the Vines. Leaf shoots emerge from the bare vines of winter and flowers grow into clusters that will soon begin their transformation into the fruit of our 2017 vintage.


H. William Harlan and his partners invite you to start the weekend at a Welcome Dinner on Friday, May 5, at Promontory, their newest estate and winery. Here you will have a chance to mingle with friends and enjoy wines from Promontory and The Napa Valley Reserve. On Saturday, May 6, Members and guests will begin with a champagne reception, followed by a wine paired dinner and lively performances by Larry Stewart, Chris DeStefano, and Member Billy Dean.
