After making a big splash in the first couple of years, we can’t imagine a Crush Challenge without the signature, all-inclusive Food & Wine Marketplace. This event will again be available on an a-la-carte basis as well as being included for those participating in the Ride or Barrel Tasting, and will highlight a large number of premium Napa Valley Wineries and Restaurants for a truly comprehensive tasting event. You will experience more of the best food and wine from the valley in one spectacular afternoon then you could get to in many separate visits! The afternoon will also include LIVE MUSIC, a silent auction and raffle, and signature Crush Challenge merchandise for sale.
