D.O.C. Wine Bars Celebrate Mustard Season in Napa with Five Days of Wine Events, April 21 – 25
Chicago, IL (April 14, 2014) – Join both D.O.C. Wine Bar Lincoln Park and D.O.C. Wine Bar Lombard all week next week in celebrating the advent of the Mustard Season in Napa (promo photos attached). The Mustard Season - formerly known as the slow season - is the handiwork of Mother Nature and, according to legend, the work of Franciscan Padre Father Junipero Serra. He scattered Spanish mustard seeds on his trek from southern to northern California; then followed a golden path of mustard in bloom back to the south. Each year around this time of season, mustard pushes through vineyard floors to lavishly embellish rows of resting vines with glorious riots of yellow blooms, filling the landscape with seas of golden froth. The scenery is breathtaking and sets the perfect stage for the months to follow of grand wine, culinary, and artistic adventures.
