The crowds are gone and restaurant reservations are not impossible which make winter my preferred season for visiting Napa. An added attraction is the Napa Truffle Festival which runs from January 12-15. It celebrates the richly textured, prized, expensive ($90 for 2 mall pieces) subterranean black fungus which is now being cultivated in wine country. The event has seminars on training dogs to hunt for truffles, wild mushroom hunts, cooking classes, truffle-based dinners and lunches at local restaurants and on Monday a free festival at Oxbow Public Market.
