"Napa Valley Vintners' weekend shines once again"

The synergy of an event and a cause in Napa Valley sometimes verges on the magical. For the Napa Valley Vintners’ inaugural Together Again Weekend, which took place June 2 to 4, even Mother Nature cooperated, providing days that were sunny but not broiling and evenings that were pleasant, nearly warm, under cloudless skies. She must have approved, as did the guests at the newest offering from the Vintners.
