Napadreamin Wine Parties
Monica and Dave Kirk, Northern California locals, are the owners and operators of Napadreamin Wine Parties, a custom wine education and party business. Located in the Sierra Foothills AVA, we are committed to taking small parties of 6-50 people on a tasting journey to experience wines from world famous, prestigious, and family owned boutique wineries in the Renowned French and Northern California Wine Country. Monica says her focus is to help you discover the “hidden gems” that cannot be found in the BIG BOX stores. The wines you will taste are made by passionate families who produce their wines concentrating on quality rather than quantity. Small production and handcrafted wines are their specialties.

Monica talks about her journey
I have lived all over the United States but something keeps calling me back to Northern California. I have returned for the third time and am proud to call this my home. I have received certificates of completion in Wine Immersion and Wine Industry programs from the Culinary Institute in America, St. Helena campus, in the Career Discovery program in the Wine Studies Department, and Napa Valley College in Tour Guide training. I have been a docent with the Napa County Historical Society and have held wine education classes in the Sacramento and Napa areas, and even in New Jersey.
My love affair with Northern California began in the 1960s when I came to Sonoma County with my family to visit other family members. It‘s rustic beauty charmed me, and later it became a place of healing and reflection.
Through all my moves around the country my affection for this area never faded. I had the opportunity to begin revisiting on a regular basis in 2005 and have returned on a yearly basis prior to relocating here permanently in 2011. That first visit back to Napa ignited a desire within me to be able to share with others the wonderful wines that are produced by the small family owned vineyards. I love seeing the light go on in my guest’s eyes when they experience all the connections that exist between the vineyard owner, the vineyard workers, the climate, the soil, the berries, the barrels and the history. This journey expanded when I started to taste and enjoy wines from other AVAs in Northern and Central California. These areas produce stellar wines that simply must be experienced.
Dave talks about his journey
I have moved many times in my life. Each area has had wonderful people and distinct, positive features. But no matter I have lived when I am asked where my favorite spot has been to live, I will always say Northern California, especially north of San Francisco. The rugged natural beauty coupled with the outdoor life-style make this ideal for discovery. A large part of my training has been in Music. I have been fortunate enough to receive graduate and post-graduate degrees in Music performance. Whether singing for a living or for the joy and beauty of it, that has nurtured a love for being with others and having a memorable time. Helping others to enjoy these times and make these memories motivates me to do all i can to learn and improve.
That improvement has led me to pursue the mastery of tasting and pairing of wines. Over the last 12 years I have had the distinct pleasure of sampling and noting over 115 different varietals of wine. That does come to about one new varietal each month for 12 years. Hmmm.... I love it when people learn why they like certain wines and do not some others. You see, that is just fine. There are thousands of varieties of grapes. We all can find something, can't we?
Let us add to your event or dinner. You might like the operatic tenor or you might like a more smooth sound, that's okay. But one thing I know, you will find a wine you will truly enjoy and have a great memory.
