BottleRock Co-Founder Gabriel Meyers
“The genesis of BottleRock springs from the great live entertainment gift that is the Uptown Theatre. The long awaited downtown Napa renaissance has inspired us to bring an eclectic and broad group of world class music and performers to our home town.The Napa Valley has set such a high standard for wine, food and hospitality that we feel that the time is right to add an amazing music festival to the mix. It will be great to see foodies, wine lovers and BottleRockers exploring the Valley by day and then coming together in downtown Napa for an evening of after parties. BRNV will be a different kind of music festival by virtue of its location in the Valley and Downtown Napa. Where else will you see winemakers, chefs, and artists mingling with patrons before, during and after the music? The chance to raise money for all of our community and charitable partners is really exciting and motivating as well.”
