“ The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a star.”

-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Napa Valley Life Magazine is excited to present our Fourth Annual edition of Forks and Corks.  This special issue showcases some of the many renowned food and wine offerings and hidden gems of Napa Valley wine country,  including  an  inside  peek at some of the region’s top chefs and their favorite recipes.

2020 has been a challenging year for Napa’s award-winning restaurants and wineries with the unexpected stipulations caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Many businesses have had to re-tool how they source, produce, serve and sell their handcrafted wines and award-winning menus, moving things outside, opening drive up and carry out service, and collaborating with the community and customers online.

Even presented with challenges, Napa Valley’s reputation as one of the top culinary and viticulture destinations in the world is unparalleled and is wel- coming visitors to safely take in the vast bounties of the region- in person or at home. The farm to table menus created by Michelin star chefs, exquisite wine and food pairing opportunities, and some of the finest, award-winning wines in North America will always present the perfect muse for unique and memorable wine country experiences.

So, whether you pull up a chair or wish to experience it from the comforts of home, get out your forks, fill up your glasses, and enjoy learning more about some of Napa Valley’s epicurean treasures.


Cheers and Bon Appetit!
