The Napa Valley Vintners trade organization is hosting 20 key wine influencers from Japan for Experience Napa Valley, a four-day immersion into Napa Valley, its wine, winemakers and vineyards. They arrived Tuesday.

Throughout the program, sommeliers, educators, media, retailers and hotel and restaurant professionals from Japan will interact with winemakers and principals from more than 50 NVV member wineries and will taste nearly 100 different Napa Valley wines. Guided tastings, panel discussions and in-the-vineyard experiences will cover a wide range of topics, including a cabernet sauvignon tasting and panel discussion; a terroir tour of Napa Valley’s unique soils, climate and topography; a reception and dinner with multi-generation, family-owned wineries; a comparative tasting of chardonnay and pinot noir; a bud-break vineyard experience; a wine blending experience; and meals featuring some of Napa Valley’s unique grape varieties and library and sparkling wines.
