Mustard Festival

Napa Valley Mustard Festival
January 31 to March 31

Mustard Season in the world-famous wine region of Northern California is a sight to behold. The fields, vineyards, and hillsides are covered with wild mustard in full bloom. The region has been hosting this festival for the last sixteen years, and for the first time last year we were able to attend. Since one of our favorite things to do is go wine tasting, we had a great time. The people are friendly and the wine and food are fantastic.

Reynold's Family Winery


Our favorite winery at this time is Reynold's. It's a small family owned and operated estate and they love dogs! Even though it was a little rainy we had a great time.

Hi Yvonne
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's always fun for me when someone new says hello!
That mustard festival must be beautiful. I'm sure the photos don't do it justice. I hope to visit the Napa Valley someday and see some of the vineyards.
Hugs, Rhondi

Mumzie, I so agree with you, I love to visit Nappa Valley and go to all the various wineries and do wine tasting. We have had many trips there and I love the posters you collect. It is such a gorgeous place. Thanks for stopping by by dish finds at GW. I have just discovered how great a selection of dishes they have. If you like white, then at least at the 2 GW's that I have near me have a ton of white things. I felt like a kid in a candy store. So nice of you to visit. I hope to see you more often. Hugs, Marty
