The Heart of Wine Country

The conference is held in the heart of California’s Wine Country near historic St. Helena, a town that sits 25 miles north of Napa and about a two-hour drive north from San Francisco or Oakland.

Daytime events take place at the Upper Valley Campus of Napa Valley College. Staff from the Napa Valley Cooking School prepare all conference meals from locally-sourced ingredients, including breakfast and lunch daily during conference week, plus dinner on Sunday and Thursday nights. Participants sample local wines at the conference’s evening readings held at wineries throughout the valley.
