This integral part of the Napa wine community found a way to support wineries who couldn’t be open for visits or tastings. A “Wine Thru” arm of PRESS’s drive-through concept highlighted a different winery weekly, offering both tastings and bottle sales, with part of the proceeds going to an employee fund.
Additionally, PRESS launched meal kits and party packs, hosted pop-ups and a beer garden, and started lunch service for the first time. Along with other local restaurants, PRESS also partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of St. Helena and Calistoga to help serve over 20,000 meals to the community.
“The last 14 months showed the nation just how vital restaurants are to our culture,” says Wine Director Vincent Morrow, MS. “Despite suffering massive losses and without government assistance for most, restaurants were the ones that stepped up to serve meals to medical personnel and families in need.”
