Saturday, August 18th: Enjoy the Mexican-American Vintner’s Association Harvest Festival and Help Napa Valley’s Underserved.
¡La Cosecha! The Harvest!
MAVA was formed 8 years ago. It is a non-profit organization whose members are Mexican-American winemakers primarily from Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Its membership is continually expanding; MAVA now has members in Paso Robles, California’s Gold Country and beyond. Its mission is to celebrate Latino vintners and winemakers while making a difference in the lives of the underserved in the communities where they create their wines.
This year’s festival will help raise money for Puertas Abiertas, an organization that helps the underserved population of Napa Valley with education and health.
This is a win-win situation. By attending, you get to help the underserved AND:
- Taste award winning wines from Mexican-American vintners (I don’t know about you, but I sure could use a boost to my Mexican-American wine knowledge);
- Enjoy appetizers by award-winning Latino Chefs; and
- Listen to live music and watch entertainment by a Salsa Orchestra, Aztec Dancers, and Ballet Folklorico.
I’ll be there. Will I see you there? Tweet me @DeathbedFood and let me know!
- Celebrate the 8th Anniversary of MAVA!
