SUMMER 2021 SEASON

Season Finale at Alpha Omega

What’s music to the ears? A season finale that simultaneously supports, energizes, and inspires the ethos of Festival Napa Valley. This closing private jazz and bluegrass concert by the celebrated violinist Tessa Lark with pianist/accordionist Sam Reider and bodacious barbecue at Robin and Michelle Baggetts’ beauty of a winery, Alpha Omega, promises just that.

The Baggetts believe that a wine’s sense of place comes from the soil, but that it also relies on the sense of hospitality a winery affords. Their warmth, enthusiasm, and welcoming nature infuses every experience at Alpha Omega. So, while you might step onto the Baggetts’ stunning ranch-style estate feeling like a guest, when you leave you’ll feel like family. Today’s delicious fare will be replete with Alpha Omega’s phenomenal wines—and of course the Baggetts’ down-home approach to appreciating the finer things in life.
