Napa Valley Restaurant Month is part of the statewide California Restaurant Month, designated by the California Travel & Tourism Commission (CTTC). In January, 20 destinations across California are hosting restaurant weeks.
“California is the top U.S. destination for culinary travel so, with these deals there’s never been a better time for foodies to visit California,” said Caroline Beteta, CTTC president and CEO. “Since we produce 90 percent of American wine and more than 400 agricultural crops, we attract some of the greatest chefs who enjoy creating with the freshest ingredients — which whets visitors’ appetites for more. Enjoying the California foodie lifestyle this January is a New Year’s resolution we can all stick to.”
