We decided to attend the Friday night dinner because many of the folks we met last year at the open houses raved about the dinners. The dinner exceeded our expectations...the scenery, ambiance, food and especially the wines were just fantastic. The pairing of each course with a special vintners' wine made the meal memorable as well as delicious. An experience we will never forget.

Saturday - Winery Open Houses


11:00 AM - 5:00 PM · At Your Leisure · Casual Attire

This District wide event gives you entrée to our most historic properties and our newest members. Begin at a starting point of your choice and wind your way up and down the Silverado Trail from winery to winery. Your V2V pass gives you exclusive access to our vintners and winemakers. Discover winery caves, enjoy special barrel tastings, explore the cellars and enjoy food and wine pairings not available to the public.

Excellent experience. The opportunity to meet and taste was outstanding. Probably one of the best wine events we have attended.

Saturday - A Celebratory Seminar - limited


10:00 AM - 11:30 AM · Casual Attire
At Shafer Vineyards

Don't miss this exclusive seminar and tasting Saturday morning as we pull out all the stops (and corks) for the Stags Leap District's 25th Anniversary. Join our vintner panel at Shafer Vineyards as we look at the appellation's history and future; reputation and quality; and sense of place spanning five decades of winemaking. Our moderator will lead a candid conversation with veteran vintners and neighborhood newcomers to reveal the most compelling truths about our appellation and dish the dirt (volcanic, clay loam or gossip) that exists too. With our owners digging deep into their cellars for our V2V guests, this sit-down tasting will rank as one your top wine experiences. Limited to only 65 guests.

Sunday - Appellation Collection Sneak Preview and Vintner-Hosted Brunch


Fare by Michelin-starred Meadowood Resort

10:30 AM - 1:00 PM · Limited · Casual Attire
At Silverado Vineyards

Don't miss the ticket to wrap up your V2V weekend! Meet and mingle with our vintners when you are the first to Sneak Preview the exclusive release of the 2012 Appellation Collection — 19 world-class cabernet sauvignons. And that's not all. Sip, swirl and stroll through Silverado Vineyards' umbrella-filled plaza as you enjoy a selection of cold whites and exceptional brunch fare prepared by famed Michelin-starred Meadowood Resort.

We decided to bring 4 of our friends from around the country this year. After a year of raving about V2V they were able to experience all that we had beamed about. They enjoyed the open houses but especially liked the Sunday brunch where we all could meet in a festive and relaxed atmosphere. We were able to meet and converse with many of the attendees we met throughout the weekend at the brunch and compare open house stories! The best part of the brunch was being able to try several of the wines that we missed on Saturday.
