Casual Celebrations @ Andretti Winery
Andretti is all about family and company celebrations! And there is no better way to kick off a wedding weekend, celebrate a birthday or anniversary or thank employees for a job well done than an afternoon or evening of great wine, food and fun at the winery.
Andretti Winery is nestled in a quiet country setting away from the traffic of Hwy. 29 and Silverado Trail. The grounds boast beautiful Tuscan-inspired architecture and a shady arboretum of trees, vineyards and views of the Stag's Leap mountains in the background. And to boot, we are within five minutes of Napa's best hotels and resorts.
A typical celebration starts with wine tasting in our barrel room and fountain courtyard, with passed or stationary hors d'oeuvres followed by dinner on the grand lawn. We'll take care of all your details... catering, beverages, entertainment, décor, sound system and rentals and we've got some fun extras... lawn games and racing inspired props for selfies, etc. Our goal: you arrive to a beautifully detailed event and have only to socialize and enjoy yourselves!
