Sense Yountville was launched in 2009 to provide guests with unprecedented access to the wines and food that define the region. Featuring highly allocated pre-release wines at en primeur pricing, rare large format bottles, and culinary pairings by an all-star lineup, Sense Yountville is — by design — a signature event for Yountville, which is widely recognized as the heart of the Napa Valley culinary scene (and the United States, for that matter). Anyone heard of Bouchon, Bottega? We thought so..
Participating restaurants and wineries are represented by principals: winemakers & chefs who are personally committed to creating an outstanding guest experience in their hometown. The event is limited to 350 guests to maintain quality of both food and wine on offer and targets discerning wine buyers — epicureans seeking an excellent value on both marquis names and small, lesser-known producers. A portion of every sale made during the event, as well as a percentage of ticket revenue will be donated to The Pathway Home, an extraordinary non-profit program providing support services to veterans of current wars based in Yountville at the Veteran's Home. This is a unique opportunity to eat well, drink well, all the while doing well for the community.
As luck would have it, this event coincides with the Kentucky derby, so Wineluvrs, be sure to don your derby best -- this isn't San Francisco, after all. Gents, feel free to slip into that seer sucker suit, and ladies hoist those derby hats high on your heads. The food and wine portion of the event is only half of the party....
Wineluv has been lucky enough to score a premium perk for our Wineluvrs: the $50 tickets to the legendary Kentucky Derby after party are thrown in this package! After the main event, you will get exclusive access to the Grozeinger House where the master mixologists from San Francisco's famed Bourbon and Branch will be there to quench your thirst with artisan cocktails. Grab a mint julep and then head into the main room where you will find 3 mega screens for your viewing pleasure as well as some gourmet bites to please the palate.
That's a $200 Michelin starred, 100 point experience, for only $150! Certain wines poured in previous years have appreciated to $600+ upon release, so consider this event a bargain basement opportunity to get first dibs on the best of the best. Gather your entourage in their derby finest and saddle up for this elite epicurean and equestrian experience. Sense Yountville sells out every year, so get your tickets now to this oenophile oasis, before it fades from view.
