Every year our Mexican-American Vintners host an exclusive Winemaker's Dinner offering MAVA's partners, sponsors, and guests unmatched tasting experiences in both wine and food, as well as a more intimate experience with our Mexican-American world class wines and winemakers.

In 2018 MAVA opened just 35 seats to the public, for the first time in MAVA history!

Our 2018 intimate dinner took place directly after our Annual Harvest Festival, on August 18th, at Michelin-Guide-Recommended Restaurant Celadon, in a charming courtyard setting on the Napa Valley riverfront. Guests were wowed by an array of wine personalities, exquisite food and, of course, unforgettable wines!

Our exceptional evening would not be possible without the generous support we receive from Merrill Lynch. Please consider our community-minded partner the next time you're in need of a financial advisor.

Stay tuned for the announcement of our next Winemaker's Dinner in Summer 2019.


Take a look at the wonderful evening we shared in 2018, with memories captured by our talented local photographer, Oz Lang:
