Inspirations from Napa
Exploring the flavors of Napa
Oberon Wines is steeped in the rich culture of Napa Valley, a region which bursts with artisans of all kinds, from talented chefs to cheesemongers and butchers, all helping to build the Valley’s culture and community.
Oberon’s winemaker Tony Coltrin, a local Napa Valley artisan in his own rite, hosts our Home Chef Series which features his tours throughout Napa where he visits with his long-time friends and favorite purveyors, sharing local inspirations, delicious recipes and entertaining tips he finds along the way.
For nearly a century, The Model Bakery has been an integral part of the Napa Valley culinary scene, providing discerning and hungry residents and Valley visitors with the best breads and pastries. Available at three locations throughout Napa Valley, proprietors Karen Mitchell and her daughter Sarah Mitchell Hansen specialize in artisan breads made with organic stone ground flours and a complete range of pastry products from the best specialty ingredients. As staples of the Napa Valley, it’s only natural that Tony and Sarah would come together to share their roots and divulge the delicious Oberon wines to pair with the bakery’s over 17 varieties of breads and multitude of sweet and savory pastries.Learn More
