Art in the Vines

di Rosa Outdoor Art in Napa

di Rosa outdoor art napa

There’s something big and bold happening in Napa, and it isn’t a cabernet. It’s the more than 200 acres of vineyard, lake, gardens, and off-the-beaten path landscape that makes up the creative spirit of di Rosa, a nonprofit art destination scenically set in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. Home to a colossal collection (about 2,000 works!) of diverse art produced by regional artists, di Rosa has three separate galleries, a shimmering oasis favored by Canada geese, and a totally unique sculpture park tucked back on the property, out of sight of Napa’s wine-tasting traffic. It’s just $5 to drop in and see the Gatehouse Gallery—displaying some of the most notable works. But it’s the guided tours that get you back to the hidden goods—including the expansive gardens and Sculpture Meadow. A brand new tour—the Outdoor Sculpture Tour ($15/person)—starts up in March and will happen regularly on the first Sunday of each month. It’s a two-hour stroll exploring art installations in the meadow, courtyard, and north lawn gardens. Discover the artists and meaning behind works like the commemorative and meditative “Glass Chapel,” the playful (and very tall!) “Chair Figure,” and the colorful glazed ceramic “Reclining Nude #2.” Breath of fresh art!

Di Rosa is located at 5200 Carneros Hwy., Napa. Their new Outdoor Sculpture Tour ($15/person) is the first Sunday of the month from 10:00 a.m. until noon, starting March 1 (which is sold out). Book ahead. No dogs.
