Third Annual Weekend for Wine, Women & Wellness

If it’s time for an escape with the ladies, then head to Napa for a unique and relaxing experience.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, The Westin Verasa Napa and La Toque Restaurant are hosting the third annual Wine, Women & Wellness event March 6-8, 2015. As indicated by its name, this female-only weekend getaway emphasizes food, wine and health for women.


With Napa’s expansive vineyards, fabulous tasting rooms and innovative winemakers, it’s no surprise that the festivities begin on March 6 with a Grand Wine Tasting Event. Held in the Solara Courtyard of the hotel from 5 to 7 p.m., the tasting highlights wines made by five notable and award-winning female winemakers.

After the tasting, attendees also have the opportunity to enjoy a four-course wine pairing dinner at La Toque, a Michelin-starred restaurant. The meal, created by Chef Ken Frank, includes the chance to interact with the female winemakers featured in the grand tasting and map of local tasting rooms.

Finally, a Westin Unwind wine tasting reception – included in the room rate – is held in the hotel lobby every evening.

In addition to being a great weekend getaway, this event includes a Dress for Success clothing drive intended to help disadvantaged women succeed in professional careers. Working with the Bay Area Chapter of this national charity, The Westin Napa Verasa encourages guests to bring gently-used and clean suits, blouses and separates from the last five years for donation.For…Wellness:
