BottleRock Napa Valley 2015 Review Day 1

Although it ended last week, Bottle Rock Napa Valley 2015 is still alive and kicking with all the live interviews that will be highlighted on FeastItForward.com over the next few months, as well as in a number of the articles I’m writing for more national publications.

So to get you primed, here’s a review of FEASTing Day 1 at the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage and great times spent with musical dynamos Imagine Dragons, Flavor Flav, Zella Day, and The Mowgli’s; star chefs Rick Moonen, Michael Voltaggio, Mei Lin, Victor Scargle, and the Forgone Family; Dave Miner of Miner Family Winery; MC Liam Mayclem; and Katie Hamilton Shaffer and the rest of the great Feast It Forward team!

You can also see some of my fun posts from the festival by visiting my Facebook page at Christopher Sawyer Sommelier or my Twitter/Instagram handles @sawyersommelier.
