Our Winter 2019 Newsletter
Winter 2019 Newsletter
Winters are sublime in Napa Valley - a time for rest and reflection. The vines have gone dormant for their long winter nap, and we look to the skies to see how much rain we'll get at this critical time. With the holidays behind us and the 2018 harvest working its magic in tank and barrel, we have time to think about the year to come.
We're excited about everything we have in store for you for 2019! We're kicking off Chinese New Year with a unique and delicious Wine & Dim Sum Tasting (which is already sold out!), and commemorating The Year of The Pig with a limited edition Napa Crest Red Wine. We're also proud of Yao's continuing work with WildAid, and we'll be launching our 2nd campaign to raise funds to help their fight to end the illegal wildlife trade.
Winter is a great time to come to Napa for a visit. Airfares and hotel rates are historically low, and the crowds are small. We're here to help you plan your winery adventure, so if you're looking for recommendations, call us at 707-968-5874.
All the best!
~Tom Hinde, President & Winemaker

Join us for complementary high-protein bites, hydrating drinks, and for those looking to celebrate, wine specials all day! We'll also be providing complementary 15-minute recovery massages from a Certified Masage Therapist. As always, Marathon staffers and volunteers are welcome all day for complementary wine tastings. And yes, our winemaker, Tom Hinde, will be running the marathon again - come by and compare times!
For the second year, Yao Family Wines is honored to produce in conjunction with WildAid this limited edition bottling of our 2017 Napa Crest Sauvignon Blanc and 2015 Napa Crest Red Wine. These delicious wines will not only grace your table or cellar, but will help with WildAid's mission, as a portion of the sale proceeds go to help end the illegal wildlife trade. For over a decade, Yao Ming has worked diligently with WildAid to end the killing of sharks, elephants, rhinos and tigers. Now, you can help, too! Click Here to learn more.
