L’Chaim! A Jewish Food and Wine Festival, at CIA at Copia

L’Chaim was created by members of Congregation Beth Shalom 15 years ago to raise funds for the synagogue and honor the Jewish vintners of Napa Valley.  It has evolved into a festival open to the entire Napa and Bay area communities with more than 600 attendees last year. The event will be held at CIA Copia on Sunday, Aug. 27, from 3:30 to 7 p.m. It includes festive music, 16 different wines from Jewish vintners from Napa and surrounding areas, craft beers, Jewish foods from lox and bagels to latkes and deli sandwiches and classes on Jewish cookery. They will be raising money for refugees from Ukraine.  Pre-event tickets are $120, including wine tasting and six food tickets, or $65, with four food tickets, for those who just want to experience the food, entertainment and classes.  Additional food and nonalcoholic beverages are $5 each. Some food items will require two tickets, with the majority of the offerings only one ticket.  Children under 12 are free and teens 13 to 17 are $45 each and include four food tickets. Tickets at the door will be $145 for the wine and food tasting and $85 for the food tasting and general admission. The entry fee is a tax-deductible donation to Congregation Beth Shalom. They also fund a scholarship at Napa Valley College Viticulture Program. Buy tickets at L’Chaim.
