How can it be possible that November just started and people are already making plans for the new year? It’s true, welcome 2017 in Napa Valley at The Meritage Resort and Spa as two options for dinner will be offered, including dinners in the Estate Cave with Trinitas Cellars and a “Taste of the World” buffet in the Carneros Ballroom. Both dinners conclude with their annual ballroom celebration with midnight sparkling toast and balloon drop. Then start 2017 off right with a Sparkling Brunch, parade and football. Here are the details:
