NAPA ROSE DINING ROOM - AUTUMN MENU 2006
For centuries, the Rose was planted at the beginning of a trellised row of grapevines. The Rose added beauty to the vineyard and also attracted bees for pollination and a bountiful harvest. Additionally, the Rose warned the vintner of unfavorable conditions. We honor the Rose for its beauty and many contributions as we bring to you the Bounty of California and the Cuisine of Wine Country.
