NAPA VALLEY OFFENSIVE
North Point-Loreto Napa Valley reunion August 27-28, 2011

ITINERARY     EVENT FEE     ACCOMMODATIONS

A reunion never to forget!

What do we get for our money?

If not the being together with good old friends who trust you and know you, then the education of fine cuisine and superb wines from the country's most famous valley.

The personalized tours on off-the beaten tourist track (read Hwy 29) of hidden treasures.

A not-to-forget meal at the renowned Culinary Institute of America that has a waiting list of 12 weeks.

An education in the 5000 year old art of cultivating grapes, the food of the Grecian isles and it's transformation into the nectar of the Gods.

The unbeatable landscape comparable in it's element to the wine trails of Cape Town, the undulating hills of Australia's Barosso Valley and France's Loire region.

Don't forget the weakness of the US dollar, too, that renders a similar European trip a joke on the amount you will spend.

We will not be supping in the likes of Fizzlers, Pizza Nut, Mr Wong's all-you-can stuff-your-face buffet, Taco Hell, Coup Kitchen, McDoNot, Bugger King and other siblings but in the lap of unsurpassed epicurean delights that are world-class.
