Festival Description

The Napa Valley Festival del Sole, one of the world’s most distinctive summer festivals, announces its fourth season in California’s beautiful wine country. With performances every day, music is the centerpiece of a festival hailed by The New York Times as a “feast for the senses,” featuring the finest cuisine, wine and hospitality the Napa Valley has to offer. The weeklong schedule includes world-class concerts, exclusive receptions, lunches and dinners, wine tastings, art exhibitions, free community concerts showcasing talented young performers, and more. Some of the world’s most renowned artists travel to Napa Valley each year to perform at Festival del Sole, and to wine, dine and celebrate the “art of life” with Festival guests.

“For the fourth year running, Napa Valley Festival del Sole offers an exceptional blend of world-class artistry, five-star cuisine, fine wines and exceptional hospitality,” said festival co-founder and director Richard Walker. “Artists and audiences are coming from all over the world to participate in this one-of-a-kind summer festival.”

“We are very pleased to be presenting another stellar lineup of artists at Festival del Sole this year – and to be supporting the young and outstanding musicians of the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas,” said festival co-founder and director Barrett Wissman. “Our fourth season looks to be the biggest and brightest ever.”

Gala events with the artists and other special guests are the culinary highlight and social center of Festival del Sole. Graciously hosted by leading wineries and vintners, daily luncheons and dinners following the concerts take place at some of the most spectacular venues in the region. Cherise and Christian Moueix, proprietors of world-famous Dominus Estate in Napa and Château Pétrus in Bordeaux, open their winery to host this special event.
