CANVAS (Concierge Alliance of Napa Valley & Sonoma) -- the leading hospitality networking organization in the Northern California Wine Country

wowed the nearly 300 guests who attended its 3rd Annual Wine Country Hospitality & Event Trade Show, which took place at the new state-of-the-art HALL Winery on July 15, 2014.
Guests were first whisked off to a series of site visits to some of Napa’s premiere wineries & event spaces: Clos Pegase, Franciscan Estate Winery, Cairdean Estate & Winery, The Caves at Soda Canyon, Pine Ridge Vineyards, and Fortunati Vineyards. Throughout the morning, they were led through unique, behind-the-scenes experiences including blending seminars, hard-hat tours, vineyard excursions and even bottle label creation.
An extravagant appetizer reception awaited guests as they returned, complete with aerial acrobats and signature cocktails. A decadent lunch followed in the HALL Winery Mezzanine, where local winemakers sat with guests and shared bottles over a two-course meal. Guests were then led to a Dessert Extravaganza terrace, where a tempting array of desserts from a dozen vendors sweetened the day.
The Exhibit Hall featured a wide variety of hospitality resources ranging from wineries to lodging, restaurants to tour guides, and a few unexpected surprises including caricature drawings, a photo booth and pets for adoption by Wine Country Animal Lovers (WCAL). Special thanks to all exhibitors, attendees, volunteers and sponsors who helped make the event such a success!
