One of the things that makes BottleRock Napa Valley (#BRNV, #BRNV14) unique among giant music festivals is its location. For years, now, the Napa Valley has been a world-renowned destination for amazing, award-winning wine and food. They are, after all, the two great tastes that taste great together.

BottleRock 2014 is right around the corner!

BottleRock Napa Valley is all about blending great music, food and wine…It really is a feast for your senses” said Latitude 38’s CEO David Graham. “Fans will experience rock star on so many levels: top chefs and culinary superstars, world class winemakers and amazing musicians all rocking out together making BottleRock totally unique. There’s just no other music festival that matches the quality of wine and food offerings BottleRock provides.”

It would, as you can imagine, be downright negligent to not pair food and wine with rock and roll, especially if that rock and roll was taking place in the heart of downtown Napa. That’s why a sizable chunk of the 26 acre location that is the Napa Valley Expo, located at 575 Third Street between Soscol Avenue and Silverado Trail, is dedicated to the kind of taste sensations that can only be found in Northern California’s premier wine country.

At the festival you can expect offerings from: Morimoto, Angèle, The Thomas, Allegria, Ca’ Momi, La Condesa, Oakville Grocery, Tarla Grill, Whole Foods, Villa Corona, Eiko’s, Fume Bistro, Napkins Bar and Grill, Il Posto Trattoria, Nick’s Cove and food trucks like Bacon Bacon and Curry Up Now as well as many more. Think: barbecue, fried chicken, Japanese, Indian, Italian, Spanish, Mexican, Mediterranean, vegan, Vietnamese, vegetarian, crab mac n’ cheese, made-to-order ceviche, wood-fired pizzas, fish tacos, pork belly sandwiches, and Vietnamese shrimp rolls and much, much more. If that’s not enough, all festival bars will be stocked with Miner Family Wines, beers from Blue Moon, Lagunitas, Anchor Steam, and Coors Light along with tasty cocktails made with Reyka Icelandic Vodka and Sailor Jerry’s Rum. There will also be a micro-brew garden that will feature 20 craft brews including local favorites from Napa Point and Napa Smith breweries. The lineup of food, wine, beer, and cocktails mirrors the diverse lineup of talent that will be performing on the four stages at this year’s BottleRock Napa Valley.
