NAPA VALLEY: Tour dream Kitchens in the Vineyards

If you could design the kitchen of your dreams, what would it look like?

For a chance to see dream kitchens come true, try today's (Saturday, April 26) Kitchens in the Vineyards, a self-guided tour of five homes that not only would please a cook, but which have enviable zones for entertaining.

Each of the featured homes is distinctive, from a Tuscan-style farmhouse to a minimalist Scandinavian sanctuary, a contemporary prefab to an Arts & Crafts Revival.

Each of the featured homes in the tour, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is styled by noted designers and florists and enhanced with spring table settings. Area chefs and local cookbook authors will also be on hand with food for tasting and books to sign.

Cost is $65 for general admission or $100 for a VIP pass that includes an opportunity to meet after the main tour with the design professionals responsible for two of the homes. A ticket includes wine and a chance to query the creative teams for tips and ideas.

For more information or to purchase last-minute tickets, call 258-5559 before Saturday. On Saturday, go to the Will Call at the Napa Valley Welcome Center, 600 Main St., Napa. Tickets will be sold from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 251-5895. musicinthevineyards.org or kitchensinthevineyards.org.


SONOMA: Drip irrigation workshop Saturday

One of the smartest things a home gardener can do is install a drip irrigation system.

The Valley of the Moon Garden Club will offer a free workshop Saturday, April 26, on how to buy components, set up a system and maintain it. The class will be from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sonoma Community Center, Room 11, 276 E. Napa St., Sonoma. No reservation is necessary, but people are urged to bring a notebook and pen. At the end of class, there will be a chance to ask questions and do some hands-on assembly with help from garden club members.
