BottleRock is Napa's biggest music event of the year, held annually each May showcasing more than 30 local wineries and dozens of restaurants.

In addition to the music, the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage will return to feature cooking demonstrations by a wide range of celebrities and chefs.

Says Dave Graham, CEO and one of three founders of Latitude 38 Entertainment (along with Justin Dragoo and Jason Scoggins), which has produced the festival since 2013: "If you look at [the BottleRock demongraphic] as a bell-shaped curve spanning nine-year-olds to 70-year-olds, we definitely try to celebrate a lineup that has music for all generations". Last year, the festival hosted Martha Stewart, José Andrés, Masaharu Morimoto and many others to provide excellent food for guests.
