The good times roll on with the return of the annual Napa Valley Festival del Sole, featuring more than 60 events at various venues around wine country, July 11-20. Its described as a celebration of the art of life, which means that fancy foods and precious wines will meet world-class music, dance and theater.
The segment of the festival that caught our attention is A Taste of Napa, a cornucopia from more than 70 restaurants, wineries and breweries, plus cooking demonstrations, a presentation on spices and super-nutrients and more. Dining Around, a food show on on KKSS-AM 910, will host a live broadcast aired throughout the Bay Area.
