April in Carneros: A Celebration of Local Wine & Food!

Posted by Olivia on Monday, April 4th, 2011

April in Paris has got nothing on April in Carneros! Come celebrate with us at The Olive Press this gorgeous wine (and olive) producing region with the yearly April in Carneros, a passport-style event that gives you all-access passage into 20 wineries where you will thrive on beautiful scenery, good food, local wine, and live music.  You can’t miss this weekend-long festival.

We’ll be giving free tours (yup, free!) around The Olive Press grounds at both 11a and 4p each day to show the public the magic behind making olive oil, right at the source. Complete with complimentary olive oil tasting at our Olive Oil Tasting Bar, you’ll get a healthy dose of olive oil culture and cuisine. To join us in the food festivities is CC Made, local beloved popcorn artisan, offering olive oil-infused popcorn products. They are not to be missed!

The event runs Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th, from 10am to 4p each day, and the purchase of a $40 commemorative wine glass gains you access into all participating wineries in the Carneros region. Of course, your party-hopping wouldn’t complete without a visit to The Olive Press, where we’ll be bustling with activity all weekend.

We’re adjacent to the Jacuzzi Family Winery, which is participating in April in Carneros, so you can double the fun when you pop in for a wine tasting and olive oil celebration. See you then!
