The Napa Valley Museum Yountville brings its popular series of Whisky Tastings to the CIA at Copia in Napa, with more wonderful whiskies and surprising food pairings – curated by Scotch whisky expert James Forbes.
Gather your clan and head for the CIA at Copia in Napa on Saturday, April 6 at 6:00 pm, when we once again observe Tartan Day -- that holiday celebrating the best of Scotland -- with our 2nd Annual Tartan Day Whisky Tasting. You’ll first tour the pop-up version of our “France is a Feast” exhibit at 6:00; then the tasting starts at 6:30 pm (ends at 8:00 pm).
Explore Scotch whisky under the expert tutelage of James Forbes, creator of the Dramophone Whisky app and Chieftain of Scotland’s popular Lonach Highland Gathering & Games.
Learn to identify in greater depth Scotch’s different regions and how a distillery’s microclimate affects the taste of its whisky. In the Napa Valley we are all experts at food pairing, so come and discover how Scotch Whisky is the answer to those tricky dishes that don’t naturally work with wine.
The evening includes a curated tasting of five great whiskies, food pairings, and a chance to tour the pop-up exhibit “France is a Feast: the Photographic Journey of Paul & Julia Child.”
