BottleRock Napa Valley: Guide to Wine, Food, Music and Hotels

By,

NAPA, May 15, 2014 – TheBottlerock Napa Valley Festival is just around the corner, back for its second year in the great city of Napa. The festival is comprised of four and a half days of live music on four stages, and some of the best wine from Napa and Sonoma accompanied by some pretty big names in food. Expectations are set high for this two-time festival, with a musical line-up that includes The Cure, Outkast, Weezer, LL Cool J, The Fray, Sublime, and jam-band favorites Tea Leaf Green.

The wine line-up is just as impressive. With so much wine to choose from, it is hard to know exactly where to start. Must taste wines include: Miner Family Winery, Flora Springs, Schug, and St. Supery.

Last year the food was touted as being totally amazing, but it fell a bit short. This year the line up appears to be as impressive as last year, so much so that foodies may come to the fest just to have access to all the great restaurants in one cool place.

Festival goers travel in from all directions for this wine-food-music lover’s paradise. According to Bottlerock, over 120,000 people attended the festival last year that featured 40 bands, 300 wines and hundreds of culinary choices.

Downtown Napa does a great job managing the massive influx of people to the area. Sure there were a few snags with shuttle busses and traffic, but overall they handled it well last year.

After experiencing the music, comedy, food and wine for a few days, here is a list of what not to miss at this year’s festival.

MUSIC SUGGESTIONS

  • Outkast: pair with Schug Sparkling Pinot Noir (Bubbles are perfect to get those feet dancing with the energy of Outkast)
  • Weezer: pair with Miner Family Chardonnay (you’ll want a wine with some depth, but light enough to keep it real)
  • LL Cool J with DJ Z-Trip: pair with Clos du Val (old school with old school)
  • Sublime with Rome: pair with the Bandit (Wine in a box. Enough said.)
  • Cracker: pair with Rombauer Chardonnay (Crackers with butter, yum.)
  • De la Soul:pair with St, Supery Sauvignon Blanc (Both are light, refreshing and make you feel like dancin’)
  • The Soft White Sixties:pair with Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon (You’ll want some soulful red wine to pair with their soulful tunes).
