About This Event

Spring is perhaps one of the most highly anticipated seasons in Napa Valley, when our vineyards and gardens wake from dormancy to welcome the sun, and a new vintage begins its journey at bud break.

Our late co-founder Dolores Cakebread, a chef and a master gardener, planted our first vegetable garden nearly 50 years ago. The bounty of that garden continues to influence our menus with fresh farm-to-table produce each season.  

In this class, we’ll tour the garden and share harvesting tips while exploring the flavors of Spring. Afterward, work hand-in-hand with our winery chefs to prepare the appetizers and three-course plated lunch you will later enjoy with Cakebread Cellars wines.

All classes are participation style and include the class, a tour of the winery and culinary gardens (weather permitting), an appetizer reception and a three-course lunch paired with Cakebread Cellars wines. All participants leave with a Cakebread Cellars apron, a booklet of recipes and wine notes from the day, some great memories and quite often, new friends.
