Easy Cup Sake

Cheers to celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto’s new Yamadanishiki Junmai sake, packed for sipping convenience in a 210 ml glass cup. The mild, dry, slightly floral quaff is made from premium-grade, polished Yamada Nishiki rice brewed with water from Kyoto Fushimizu (famous for crafting high-end sake). 610 Main St., Napa, (707) 252-1600, morimotonapa.com.

Farm Restaurant at Carneros Resort and Spa

Executive chef Aaron Meneghelli has unveiled a five-course themed tasting menu, showcasing pristine produce from his new on-site organic farm.
